Sweden shows the latest within new technology –when the exhibition Innovative Sweden opens at Tongji University, Shanghai November 2, 2012
“Innovative Sweden” is an exhibition that shows the hottest new innovations from 20 young, Swedish growth companies within the fields of environmental technology, information and communication technology, healthcare and gaming.
In a time when China is looking to become a more innovative country, Sweden is a country to look to for inspiration. The curiosity, creativity and desire for change have made Swedes innovators, and creative Swedes have given today’s modern society inventions such as the pacemaker, the 3-point seatbelt, safety matches, as well as recent popular software, used daily all over the world, like Skype and Spotify.
The exhibition “Innovative Sweden” premiered at Stanford University in 2011 and is currently on a world tour. It has been shown in Toronto, Washington D.C., Rio de Janeiro and Beijing before coming to Shanghai. The exhibition will be showed at Tongji University from November 2-23, 2012. Several activities and seminars on the themes of clean tech, ICT and innovative design will be arranged throughout the exhibition period.

Last year jDome went to ITEC, Europe's largest Defense Simulation Exhibition, virtually unknown to the defense industry and took it by storm. This year we are at ITEC with our partner Bohemia Interactive Simulations, the main supplier of tactical training software in volume to NATO and other defense countries!
jDome has created a buzz in the industry as a easily deployable, pop-up immersive COTS-solution for in field training, which sets up in less than 15 minutes! With its small footprint you can have several jDome-systems for each individual soldier which share the same virtual environment, thanks to Bohemia Interactive Simulations Server Solutions.
jDome is located in the center of Bohemia's booth no F110. We hope to be able to add further to the immersive experience of the jDome this year, with the EgoGun, a replica of the M41, with buttons and sensors to remove need for a keyboard and mouse.
