PiiA - Strategic Innovation Program

PiiA will strengthen Swedish competitiveness

SICS Västerås has been assigned to host the programme office for a new SIP, Strategic Innovation Program, for Sweden. The new SIP is Process Industrial IT and Automation: PiiA. Process Industrial IT and automation is an area where several Swedish companies are world leading when it comes to developing, delivering, integrating and using automation technology.

Right now, the activities of PiiA are being formed. In autumn 2013, eight pilot studies were granted, and in 2014 further calls and projects will be implemented. There will be program activities such as conferences or mentoring program and other strategic initiatives in PiiA, such as test-beds or graduate schools.

PiiA is one of five strategic innovation areas of Sweden appointed in 2013. The focus of SIP's is to contribute to a mobilization where industry, academia and the public sector together strengthen the competitiveness of Sweden and create conditions for sustainable solutions to global societal challenges. Responsible authorities are VINNOVA, the Swedish Energy Agency and Formas.
