The Swedish Energy Agency’s program, India-Sweden Innovations’ Accelerator (ISIA), has since the beginning of 2013 resulted in a number of collaborations for Swedish innovation companies. While India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits Sweden, 12 Swedish innovation companies travel to India to present their solutions for the development of the energy system.
Since the start of the program in 2013, more than 30 Swedish companies have participated in the program and more than half are still active on their own, after the 1.5-year introduction process. Every year two contact trips are organized and in 2018 another 12 new companies will be introduced on the Indian market.
The companies selected for participation in ISIA need to have scalable innovations and a willingness and opportunity to expand on an international market. Their technology should be relevant for Indian conditions.
