AI Sweden in Canada
AI Sweden is taking an active role in one of the world’s best AI ecosystems.
In the light of our mission of accelerating the use of AI for the benefit of our society, our competitiveness, and for everyone living in Sweden, AI Sweden recognizes the need for international collaboration and international inflow of knowledge to the Swedish AI ecosystem.
AI Sweden has therefore established a presence in Montreal, Canada, to be active in one of the best ecosystems in the world when it comes to applied AI research. The purpose is to create a strong relationship between the two countries, strengthen the Swedish ecosystem, and to accelerate the growth of applied AI.
Canada is known for its strong AI ecosystem, with a large number of AI startups, a strong academic AI community, and ample government support for AI. By establishing a presence in Canada, AI Sweden will be able to learn from and collaborate with Canada’s AI community, and help Swedish companies access the talent and the competence in Canada.
In return, the Canadian ecosystem can learn from AI Sweden about the Swedish AI ecosystem, about our work in accelerating applied AI and engage in knowledge-sharing activities with the goal of working on concrete projects together with our strong industrial sector and our innovative research partners.
