Mission group 3 – Nordic digital green transition program

The purpose of this mission group is to contribute to the green transition agenda as a strong intersectoral and Nordic region partnership to explore and exploit the Nordic comparative advantages instead of individual countries, sectors, and institutions.

To achieve this, we need to address: How to uncover existing initiatives within digital green transition in the Nordic region.

  • What can we learn from each other across the Nordic countries?
  • What initiatives can we establish together into the EU system?
  • What initiatives could be exciting to work together on, where the “Nordic added value” is present and clear?
