Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf chaired the India-Sweden High-Level Dialogue on Innovation Policy in New Delhi this afternoon.

The High-Level Dialogue aims to create a platform with key stakeholders in a triple helix format from government, private sector and academia to provide overall strategic direction for joint innovation policy.

The dialogue also aims to jointly formulate and implement short- and long-term projects in strategic areas such as circular economy, digital health, artificial intelligence, sustainable energy, and future mobility.

A bilateral project to convert agriculture waste to bio-coal was announced on the occasion. It is a project established by the support of the office of Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government at National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute, Mohali in partnership with Bioendev, Sweden.

This plant converts paddy straw into high energy bio-coal. The current plant has the potential to convert 150 kilogram of agri-waste per hour into energy-efficient and clean bio-coal.

Our correspondent reports that on the 17th of April last year, India and Sweden signed a joint innovation partnership to deepen the collaboration between the two countries and contribute to sustainable growth and new job opportunities.


The partnership was signed during the visit of Prime Minister Modi to Sweden. It was agreed in the Joint Declaration on India-Sweden Innovation Partnership for a Sustainable Future, that both countries will explore optimizing the formal bilateral collaboration mechanisms, increase synergies between policy areas and enable the exchange of experiences and best practice regarding innovation policies.
