AI Sweden’s sector initiatives are a way for organizations from both the private and public sectors to join forces to tackle some of the major challenges where AI has the potential to be an important part of the solutions.

AI provides powerful tools for societal change and AI Sweden wants to strategically engage in challenges where no single actor can solve the entire problem. That is why AI Sweden together with its partners is leading three sector initiatives that are central to our society going forward. 

To pave the way for AI as a natural part of the Swedish healthcare system, the 290 municipalities, and the energy system, those three areas have been selected as AI Sweden’s first sector initiatives. During 2023 we started another initiative: a shared digital assistant for the public sector. They serve as platforms where stakeholders can join forces to explore how AI is best used, develop both core technology and specific implementations, and build knowledge around best practices and what needs to be explored further.

Questions about our sector initiatives and projects?


The sector initiative information-driven healthcare supports Swedish healthcare organizations to develop AI solutions. The goal is to offer more information-driven, personalized, and scalable healthcare.

AI for municipalities and civil society

The mobilization for AI in municipalities and civil society (Kraftsamling för AI i kommuner och civilsamhälle) is a four-year investment and effort together with Vinnova to tailor support and resources for Sweden’s 290 municipalities and many civil society organizations to use AI.


Our initiative around energy focuses on the implementation of AI in energy demand productions, analyzing patterns and optimizing energy production and consumption. This initiative aims to achieve a more sustainable and efficient energy grid.
