Sweden and Poland have a long and rich experience of economic cooperation, and large Swedish companies have been present on the Polish market for over 100 years. For both Sweden and Poland the concept of innovation is very important- starting with the accomplishments of Alfred Nobel, Nicolaus Copernicus and Marie Curie, and ending with the cutting edge technologies of both countries.

Also, large Swedish companies such as Volvo and Saab, are for many years promoting innovation through its products. Poland  gradually becomes a start-up center in the region, and domestic entrepreneurs are increasingly recognizing the benefits of research and development activities. Companies such as Comarch or Vigo System are today a business card of the Polish economy, among other things, by investing in innovative, technologically advanced solutions.
