Project - Cleantech Kvarken

Description


Description (EN): The Cleantech Kvarken project aims at strengthening the preconditions for small and medium sized enterprises in the clean-tech sector to do business on the regional, national and international markets. This is done by establishing cross-border cooperation between cities, municipalities and publicly owned companies, increasing the cooperation between the cleantech companies in the regions, executing joint export initiatives to markets both inside and outside the Nordic countries as well as attracting investments and establishment of new companies to the regions.
Description: Cleantech Kvarken är ett projekt som syftar till att stärka förutsättningarna för små och medelstora cleantech-företag att göra affärer på regionala, nationella och internationella marknader. Detta sker genom att etablera gränsöverskridande samarbete mellan städer, kommuner och kommunägda bolag, öka samarbetet mellan cleantech-företagen i regionerna, genomföra gemensamma exportinitiativ till marknader inom och utanför Norden samt genom att attrahera företagsetableringar till regionerna.
Description: Cleantech Kvarken-hankkeessa vahvistetaan cleantech-alan pk-yritysten edellytyksiä tehdä uutta liiketoimintaa sekä kansallisilla että kansainvälisillä markkinoilla. Tämä saavutetaan luomalla rajat ylittävää yhteistyötä kaupunkien, kuntien sekä niiden omistamien yhtiöiden välillä, lisäämällä alueiden cleantech-alan yritysten yhteistyötä, toteuttamalla yhteisiä vientiponnistuksia uusille markkinoille sekä pohjoismaissa että niiden ulkopuolella sekä houkuttelemalla uusia investointeja ja yrityksiä maakuntiin.
