The SCCT Innovation Award (SIA) recognises Swedish and Taiwanese partnerships which create meaningful solutions to common challenges.  The Award is inspired by the example of Swedish entrepreneur Alfred Nobel whose prize rewards innovations benefitting humankind.

The Award will be granted to an SCCT member company who has developed a new or significantly improved product or service that is commercially viable and contributes to at least one of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  The extent to which the case submitted impacts the development of both the company and society are important factors in the evaluation.

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Taipei connects Sweden and Taiwan. Throughout the year we develop collaborative relationships among businesses, individuals and community organisations. An Awards Ceremony will be held in Taipei in December to recognise the achievements of the people and businesses who have innovated for a better world.

How submissions will be evaluated

The SCCT Board of Directors will evaluate the submitted cases according to the award objectives, rank the cases and determine the winner. The project manager will function as a secretary and support the discussion with information.

It is paramount that this award have integrity.  If any Board member has a conflict of interest based on a personal or professional relationship (such as currently representing the same company as the applicant) they will self-identify as being in a conflict of interest and not participate in that part of the discussion and decision.

The Award Ceremony

The Award ceremony is intended to motivate Taiwanese and Swedish collaboration for the benefit of humanity and the world overall.

The event exemplifies our mission to connect, appreciate and learn from one another as well as contribute to our common sustainability goals.  The ceremony format is inspired by the Nobel gala in which keynote speeches will be delivered about the significance of the innovations being recognized.  Cultural exchanges and relationship building will be facilitated through art, entertainment and dialogue.

The award is an occasion to make the world a better place by working together for our common good.
