At Clusters meet Regions – Skåne, Sweden, we will spotlight how clusters can act as drivers of regional competitiveness. Invited guest speakers will provide cases and examples from each of Skåne’s smart specialisation areas, and participating delegates will be offered visits at companies specialised in tech, food, and life science & health.
In addition, the event will focus on interregional dimensions – asking: How can clusters utilise interregional collaboration opportunities to strengthen the EU’s value chains in different industrial ecosystems? What can we learn from Skåne?
The event will end with a large party hosted at the main venue, where all speakers and delegates are invited to join.
The event will bring together over 100 representatives of the EU clusters and companies, national and regional public authorities, and business support organisations from Sweden and other EU regions. Other related actors – such as researchers, civil society, financial intermediaries, innovation agencies, industrial associations, and investors – are also invited to participate.
The aim of the event is to give visibility on how clusters can be integrated into the design and implementation of regional development policies where clusters are drivers of regional competitiveness, growth, employment, and innovation, and act as key accelerators and enablers for digital and green transitions as well as to strengthen resilience.
We look forward to seeing you in Skåne, Sweden on June 15-16!
