The Previous Nordic Thematic Group: Innovative and Resilient Regions in the Nordics (2017-2020)
The Nordic Thematic Group for Innovative and Resilient Regions 2017-2020 aimed to develop policies and new solutions to the challenges that the Nordic regions face when it comes to resilience, innovative capacity, and skills provision while focusing on green transition, smart specialization, and digitalization. Sustainable growth of the Nordic Region is dependent upon innovation and entrepreneurship at the regional and local levels. This involves establishing and developing strategic partnerships between education and research bodies, public authorities, and businesses in Nordic areas with a view to achieving sustainable development.
In order to learn from each other and find the best ways to accept challenges, the cooperation between Nordic countries has been made. The group studied current affairs of innovation and resilience through applied science and sharing best practices between the countries and regions. The group was a part of the Nordic Co-operation Programme for Regional Development and Planning 2017-2020.
