The Nordic impact on Cities – a Nordic Innovation partner event

13:00 - 16:00
BLOX, Copenhagen, Denmark
Roll up at WCEF2019

The Nordic Vision 2030 states that the Nordic Region will be the most integrated and sustainable region in the world within 10 years. Let's meet, share and discuss how we can make this vision a common ground for a green, social responsible and a competitive Nordic Region.

Without our partner organisations we would not be able to make the impact that we do.

Come and meet up with our partner organisations and network with what could be new partners for upcoming funding opportunities.

Nordic Innovation invites all our present and future partners to participate and listen to inspiring speeches, and together create an open space for sharing experiences while networking. Register above (external website).
