Welcome to the exclusive Nordic Webinar Series

The webinar series is designed to bring key top-level players across the Nordic countries and from different sectors together. 

The aim is to discuss what happened during the Corona crisis, how we have used different strategies to cope with the crisis, and what we have learned about transforming our organizations. It is also the aim of the series to open up discussions regarding what will happen in the future when research and innovation become even more important driving forces in the societal developments. Further, what needs to be done and changed in our systems to really address the issues of green transition and sustainability – focusing on unique Nordic approaches or opportunities for cooperation. 

All three webinars are designed to include speakers, group work, and discussions. Brief topical videos and national information will be shared in advance, and concise summaries of the main points will be shared after the events to be used as background material in all the countries involved.
