The webinar will focus on how we in the Nordics can move beyond the crisis together and on how the green transition provides a perfect opportunity for Nordic collaboration both locally and on the global stage.

During the webinar Business Sweden will present what actions have been taken in the Nordics to support recovery, including a presentation of The New Business Landscape. By identifying key trends, transformations and shifts that will occur over the next decade, Business Sweden has gathered insights to help understand the real and potential impact on Swedish business and public stakeholders that will shape the next decade.

Consequently, Business Sweden will present two exciting focus areas for 2021, Smart Transportation and Smart Energy, both of which are areas where the Nordics are uniquely positioned to make an impact. Cross-border collaboration within Smart Transportation and Smart Energy can grow R&D, increase investments, and accelerate trade, with the Nordic countries taking a leading role globally in the green transition.

By participating in this webinar, you will gain an understanding of:

  • Stimulus packages and investments to support recovery and green transition in the Nordics
  • Insights from Business Sweden’s The New Business Landscape
  • Trends and business opportunities focusing on Smart Transportation and Smart Energy
