In 2009, the region of Västra Götaland (SE) was awarded the AER Regional Innovation Award (RIA) for its project “Industrial Dynamics” which was regognised by the jury for stimulating innovation in the region and promoting industrial companiesʼ growth and stronger competitiveness through more forceful exploitation of development potential and support for innovation.
“The jury was particularly impressed by the quantitative independently evaluated. There was a clear focus on the regionʼs potential. Finally, this initiative is politically backed and is based on a strong existing demand.”
