Tankmeeting / Cross-Boundary Collaboration / Learning event / Innovation Event
Innovation Pioneers is a collective learning network founded by innovation leaders and practitioners from a wide cross industrial background of companies, organizations, government agencies, academia, research and startups. Innovation Pioneers members work with innovation on both a strategic and operational level. They are leaders and visionaries, practitioners and strategists. Together they aggregate, produce and develop methods, processes, tools and experiences.
Initiated in 2008, the network’s primary annual sharing of knowledge events include Innovation Pioneers Summit, the two-day action-oriented Innovation event and four single-topic Tank Meetings.

The Tankmeetings was always co-hosted with a member and held at their local offices around Sweden. Each Tankmeeting was always facilitated and curated with a thematic focus that was based on members current challenges.

A few examples of topics that was covered over the years:

The Metaverse of Work (Vasakronan), Circular Economy and Sustainable Lifestyle (White Arkitekter), How to walk the talk with inclusive Innovation (Ericsson ONE), AI in Manufacturing (SKF), Inclusive Prototyping (Veryday), How to make corporate innovation work (Ideon Open), The future of mobility (OKQ8), Blockchain a digital disruptor (CGI), Exponential thinking (Stena Line) and much more.

Tankmeeting at White Arkitekter – Circular Economy and Sustainable Lifestyle

This learning event was looking at circularity from the perspective of everyday life where we see trends, needs, and desires that trigger innovation. We took a grip on concrete challenges of production and consumption in a circular society and framed the actors, processes, places and cultures that lay ground for new business models connected to The Global Goals.
