TFI årskonferanse 2010, Gunnel Gustafsson og Rold Annerberg

Two years ago the Nordic region’s largest ever research and innovation initiative in the fields of climate, environment and energy was launched by the Nordic prime minsters. Two years of the initiative’s five-year period have now passed. What has this top-level collaboration between research and industry achieved so far? What role can the Top-level Research Initiative play in promoting green growth? And how can this Nordic initiative make a difference in a global context?

Top leaders from the Nordic innovation and research community, trade and industry and political circles will discuss these questions with project managers and participants in the initiative at the TRI Annual Conference 2011.
