The transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy brings benefits for the climate and for growth. The inland areas of Scandinavia offer exceptional potential for developing a bioeconomy and replacing oil with forest raw material. The project Bioeconomy Region supports the transformation leading to new production and technology companies, research, experience and broad knowledge of production technology and plant construction.
Paper Province has participate the last weeks in international meetings to promote the region of Värmland and surrounding areas. After a conference in Japan, Paper Province headed to Toronto, Canada, for the world leading cluster conference TCI.
The project Bioeconomy Region’s goal is to help small and medium-sized enterprises to speed up the whole process from innovation and commercialisation to industrial transformation. It will also stimulate SME growth by expanding the market – both nationally and internationally.
At the same time, the larger companies gain greater opportunities to advance through new innovations and technologies. And investors find it easier to identify interesting businesses that might be the big game changer or simply a good deal – for investors, entrepreneurs, society and our future environment.
The Bioeconomy Region
The Bioeconomy Region is an Interreg project funded by the regions of Värmland and Dalarna and Säffle Municipality in Sweden, plus the county municipalities of Akershus, Hedmark, Oppland and Østfold in Norway, in partnership with Paper Province and the European regional development fund Interreg Sweden-Norway. The project also has a large number of partners from the worlds of business and academia in Norway and Sweden.
