Today’s ideas shape tomorrow’s world. Sweden has always been fertile ground for innovation in technology, business and social trends – from the pacemaker to the computer mouse, from Ikea to Skype. In our increasingly competitive world, Sweden continues to top world rankings for innovation.
One reason is the dynamic learning environment in the universities with its systematic approach to generating new ideas. Swedish universities are renowned for their investigative research and independent thinking. Much focus is put on developing the students’ ability to engage in critical thinking and developing an analytical mindset.
