Nytt&Nyttigt is a thesis competition on the theme of innovation, commercialization and utilization organized by VINNOVA (Sweden’s innovation agency) and ESBRI (Entrepreneurship and Small Business Research Institute). The purpose is to encourage students at Swedish universities to write theses on innovation and commercialization/utilization. More information here.
About the competition: Innovations can include new consumer products, processes, services or management solutions, both in the private and public sector. They can be commercialized or otherwise benefit the society. We hope that the competition’s contributions will provide a broad illumination of the subject, with analyses from a variety of perspectives. Some examples of interesting questions:
- What is the relationship between R&D investments, innovation and growth?
- How does innovation contribute to a sustainable society?
- What conditions apply to foster innovation?
