Regional and user-driven innovation
In the Nordic region, as in most other regions, innovation policy has generally focused on the scientific and technological drivers of innovation. However, the largest numbers of companies do not innovate based purely on these drivers. Today, the policy focus in both the EU and the Nordic countries is turning towards two “new” areas; regional innovation and user-driven innovation.
Unique forum for dialogue
The purpose of the “New trends in Nordic innovation” conference is to create a unique forum for dialogue between political policy players and practitioners representing both regional and user-driven innovation. Best practice and not so good practice in the Nordic countries will be presented and discussed during the conference.
