Swedish Innovation Journalism Program Growing Up
The Swedish Innovation Journalism program has matured, and the Director General of VINNOVA, Dr Per Eriksson, has now decided to endorse it as a part of regular Swedish innovation policy. I will be shaping the long term program together with division directors at VINNOVA as from this autumn.
Per Eriksson was the first policy maker in the world to support the concept of Innovation Journalism. I started the initial Innovation Journalism program as a pilot directly under him in 2003.
