Brazil and Sweden have a Strategic Partnership since 2009. The partnership was renewed through a new Action Plan in 2015 with the creation of the High-Level Group on Aeronautics (HLG) with a focus on the aeronautic sector. In 2016, the INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP on Innovative High Technological Industrial Cooperation (SGI) was formed to strengthen and formalize cooperation in areas outside aeronautics. The focal point of the SGI in Sweden is the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation (MEI) and in Brazil, the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Telecommunication (MCTIC).

Under the SGI, which gathers at a high-level governmental yearly meeting, is located the Executive Committee of Innovation (ECI). ECI is responsible for carrying into effect the bilateral cooperation in science and innovation during the year through bilateral meetings with the two above mentioned ministries as focal points.

At the last SGI meeting in October 2019, a proposal for an Action Plan was presented with four selected areas: Life science (Healthcare), Smart Cities, Sustainable Mining and Bioeconomic. In 2020, platforms for collaboration will be created in both countries to find common ground for collaborations according to the triple-helix model.
