Time: 09.00-16.30

We will spend a full day taking a journey from classical manufacturing into world class manufacturing.

Have you ever wondered how current manufacturing looks like in a leading industrial corporation? What are the main challenges? Which new enabling technologies are emerging and how can AI be used in the transition from classical to world class manufacturing? Or maybe you wonder what is meant by “world class”. Then take this journey with us!

Program:

  • The day will start with an introduction of traditional manufacturing processes and technologies, and the current challenges therein.
  • The introduction will be followed up by a visit to one of SKF’s world class factories in Gothenburg where you will see how a factory with a minimal amount of operators looks like. Don’t be scared by the self-driving trucks – they are used to visitors.
  • After this visit we take a leap directly into the future where we will co-create the future of manufacturing in an interactive workshop with all participants and some of the most prominent SKF experts from the field.

The main question will be:

Where, and how, can AI be used to boost traditional manufacturing into world class?

SI and international delegation to attend Innovation Pioneers Summit

At this year’s Innovation Pioneers Summit, we are happy to welcome The Swedish Institute and a delegation of international innovation leaders from around the globe.

At this year’s Innovation Pioneers Summit, we are happy to welcome The Swedish Institute (Svenska Institutet) and a delegation of international innovation leaders from around the globe.

Innovation Pioneers Summit is a two-day action-oriented conference bringing together more than 200 innovation leaders. To this year’s event, the Swedish Institute has invited a delegation of twenty international innovation experts from Europe, North America, Africa and Asia to attend the conference to learn about and connect with the Swedish innovation space.

– At the Swedish Institute, my role is to identify networking opportunities between foreign and Swedish innovation leaders. This fall, we are bringing experts from around the world to Stockholm to showcase Swedish innovation capabilities. We are looking to help them make valuable business connections and also to promote trade between the countries. Innovation Pioneers Summit will be the perfect platform for this, explains Ziba Zareie, Programme Manager at Swedish Institute.

The international delegation consists of two main groups. Half the group comes from the Balkans (Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia and Albania) and are looking to strengthen the innovation ecosystem in their own regions and learn more about the Swedish innovation ecosystem.

The other part of the group are from Japan, USA, Egypt and the UK, looking to establish new business connections with Sweden. The participants either run some sort of incubator or hub today, focus on academia within the innovation space, or conduct innovation projects connected to the The Global Goals.

– Our ambitions is for our international guests to leave the summit fueled with new knowledge and input that they can bring back to their own regions and use in real projects. At the same time, I’m sure there will also be a lot of interesting networking opportunities, says Ziba Zareie.

Innovation Pioneers and the whole team involved in working with Innovation Pioneers Summit would like to give a very warm welcome to the international delegation! This year’s summit will take place on October 23 – 24 in Stockholm.

The Four Innovation Classes of 2018

The summit will be held in Stockholm on October 23rd – 24th on the theme ‘building intelligent futures’.

“Innovation Pioneers Summit is about sharing experiences with other innovation leaders, listening to world-renowned speaker and taking part in innovation classes. You always learn something new and meet inspiring people”, says Anna Bäck, Chairman of Innovation Pioneers.

Anna Bäck is an Associate Expert Partner at McKinsey & Company and COO of Veryday, one of the world’s top-ranking design and innovation consultancies. Veryday is one of the initiator companies that was part of starting up the Innovation Pioneers network ten years ago, and they have been an active member since. As of the beginning of the year, Anna is also the Chairman of Innovation Pioneers.

“Innovation Pioneers is such an exciting network, with inspiring members from across different industries. I believe that we have a very important role to play; through innovation sharing and insights we can help lift the innovation abilities across all Swedish industries.”

 

Innovation classes of 2018

The classroom is an important pillar at Innovation Pioneers Summit, and will be in the center of this year’s event. During the two days, participants will split up into four innovation classes led by industry-leading representatives for learning sessions about disruptive subjects that are affecting society as well as businesses and organizations across the globe.

The themes of the innovation workshops will be Collaboration & Co-creation (hosted by RISE & Ignite), AI & Business (hosted by IKEA & Adverai), People & innovation (Arbetsförmedlingen & Novare) and Smart & Human cities (hosted by Veryday & Urban ICT Arena).

“The innovation workshop themes have been put together by the initiator group behind Innovation Pioneers, with the aim of highlighting different trends and technologies that are impacting organizations today. Each session will focus on innovating around how new technology and human behaviour can affect each participating organization.”

The innovation classes are based on a ‘learning by action’ methodology, meaning that participants will take an active part in the learning process.

 

Innovation tools to bring back to the organization

During the summit, different innovation methods and tools will be presented. Innovation teams visiting the summit together will gain a common ground and understanding to bring back and continue working on within their organizations.

“Our vision is for every participant to leave the summit fueled with new knowledge and insight, and to gain new tools to bring back to their own organization. This is achieved by putting active learning in the center of the summit, with focus on dialog and interactivity.”

Summit participants work with innovation in different industries and constellations, and are open to sharing their views on innovation principles, struggles and possibilities. Instead of competition, the atmosphere is focused on sharing and openness.

“The participants are a big part of what makes the conference interesting as well! You meet and network with other innovative minds in a context focused on sharing and learning.”
