Date: 28th September 2010 - Understanding Nordic Innovation Excellence
Knowledge Exchange Wales is delighted to return after our summer break with details of the first of our autumn series of seminars.
Our next event is on Tuesday 28th September and is entitled ‘Understanding Nordic Innovation Excellence’. As usual this is a breakfast seminar in the Village Hotel, Swansea starting at 08:30 until 10:30. This event is focused on learning about successful innovation techniques and real business examples from the leading Nordic countries.
Within the European context, Scandinavia is considered the benchmark as the leading region in respect to R&D and innovation. The European Innovation Scoreboard developed by the European Commission, which provides a comparative assessment of the innovation performance of the EU27 member states, rates Denmark, Finland, Germany and Sweden as the innovation leaders, all with innovation performance well above the European average and all other countries. Attend our event to learn some of the secrets to this regions success!
Speakers for the event will include:
