São Bernardo do Campo municipality gathered a group of stakeholders from the municipality, various representatives from the local industry and universities from the region to visit Sweden. The aim is to build knowledge about Sweden´s success factors in terms of research and development e g nanotechnology, mechanical precision, defense, etc.
Sweden has long established a close relationship with the municipality of São Bernardo do Campo. For instance Scania was the first Swedish company to establish production in the city. This cooperation has led to the launch of the Swedish Brazilian Innovation Centre (CISB) in São Bernardo do Campo to promote projects strongly linked to research and development. The collaboration between universities, government and industry is seen as an important component. Also SAAB has established a close relationship to São Bernardo do Campo associated with the Gripen deal.
