Northern Connections

Partner Testimonial - Sustainable Business Hub

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 - Published by Rikke Schak Toustrup-Jensen

Sustainable Business Hub is one of Sweden’s leading cleantech clusters with a strong focus on urban sustainability, including urban energy systems. Sweden has been a frontrunner in this area, and Sustainable Business Hub works to capitalise on this strength by convening businesses, universities, and public authorities around specific challenges and providing them with a platform to collaborate for innovation.

Northern Connections allows us to learn from clusters and other actors in the North Sea Region to improve how we engage with stakeholders in our innovation ecosystem and stimulate their innovative capacity. It also provides concrete opportunities for our SMEs to deploy and test their innovative solutions to address sustainability challenges in Living Labs across the North Sea Region.

In other words, Northern Connections allows us to transform the North Sea Region’s sustainability challenges into opportunities and exploit them to drive innovation and growth. This kind of international collaboration is a central part of our strategy to capitalise on our strengths in the increasingly crowded global cleantech markets.
