Nordic Innovation offered grants for activities promoting Nordic solutions for sustainable, smart and liveable cities to relevant stakeholders from outside the Nordic region. The funding decision has been postponed due to high interest.
By supporting Nordic Innovation Houses in Hong Kong, Singapore, Silicon Valley and New York, Nordic Innovation aims to respond to challenges caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic and help enable transition towards virtual activities.
The Nordic countries are facing challenges with regard to a growing population with an extended lifespan, and a rising number of senior citizens, patients with chronic diseases and people with lifestyle diseases. But there are effective and sustainable solutions that can increase quality of life for Nordic citizens.
