Sweden, often overlooked as a market, has recently intensified its cybersecurity efforts, igniting a surge of business opportunities. The nation’s commitment to digital protection has made it an attractive hub for international companies with demonstrated expertise in cybersecurity. Acting as a gateway to the Nordic cybersecurity market, Sweden’s strong links with the Netherlands, including government ties, knowledge institutions, and companies, set the stage for deeper collaborative endeavors. Gain further insights into Sweden’s cybersecurity market here.
InnovationQuarter, Security Delta (HSD), the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Dutch Embassy in Stockholm are organising a Cyber Mission to Sweden in 2024.
The Cyber Mission Sweden 2023 served as a catalyst for future advancements and collaborations in the field of cybersecurity. Read more about the past Cyber Mission Sweden 2023 here: Expanding Market Potential and Driving Collaborations.
What to expect in 2024?
After this trip you will know more about the latest developments in Sweden and you will have been able to meet local (cybersecurity) experts, policy makers and end users. The core of this mission consists of a visit to the Mobile Heights ICT cluster and participation in the Stockholm Tech Show.
We start in Lund where the organization Invest in Skåne receives us. The program will include a visit to the Mobile Heights ICT cluster. This cluster with around 130 members in the south of Sweden is a European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH), founded in 2009 by Sony, Ericsson, Telia, Skåne, Lund University and Malmö University. Their members range from hardware vendors and software developers to organizations that support technology development in areas such as UI/UX design, research, law and intellectual property. Some of the key technologies and expertise represented in this cluster include (but are not limited to):
- Radio Communications
- Internet of Things (IoT) & Embedded Systems
- Image Processing & Biometrics
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning
During this day, other relevant stakeholders in the south of Sweden are also invited and a pitch session is possible. In short, you start this mission by meeting relevant parties from Swedish business and government.
We then travel to Stockholm to participate in the Stockholm Tech Show. This is a conference, fair and meeting place focused on secure and innovative solutions for the digital age, with a focus on topics such as:
- AI & Big Data
- Cyber Security
Policymakers, managers and experts from the private and public sectors come together here to learn from each other, meet leading suppliers from the sector, exchange experiences, discuss innovations and make new contacts for national and international cooperation.
The Netherlands is present at the fair with an NL Lounge. This lounge serves as a central base for your visits and you can also use the lounge as a meeting point for your guests. The Dutch delegation as a whole will be visible in the marketing communications of the fair. The lounge is located at a central point at the fair, which almost guarantees a spontaneous arrival of interested visitors. You can also register free of charge for a short speaking session on the open stage of the fair.
Collective matchmaking will take place during the mission, where we also use the contacts of the Enterprise Europe Network. The Dutch embassy in Stockholm is organizing a networking drink to which relevant local stakeholders are invited.
