The Mid Nordic Region


Overview of Current State and Proposals for Joint Initiatives

Throughout the eight regions of the Mid Nordic region we can find systematically built innovation milieus that are based on interaction between public authorities and the private sector.

The study will introduce the key characteristics of the innovation milieu in each of these eight regions along with identifying the key regional innovation organizations.

Along with the descriptions the study presents suggested Mid Nordic innovation co-operation projects which can be used as a starting point for further discussions.The study is based on interviews with over 40 key regional innovation organizations and persons throughout the Mid Nordic belt in Finland, Sweden and Norway.
