Being home to the Nobel Prize is more than a symbolic nod to great achievements in science and the humanities; Swedish ingenuity continues to drive progress in a range of fields, in particular information and communications technologies (ICT). According to ERAWatch, Sweden is one of the only two EU countries that has managed to surpass the target of 3% of GDP invested in R&D annually. Researchers in Sweden are working on a range of EU-funded ICT projects – from smart electricity metering, through Internet safety to eHealth.
