Purpose and goal

The project is a forum where the conditions and mechanisms of growth are discussed. The focus lies on how global economic development and trends on a macro level affect and are affected by businesses´ strategies on a micro level. It is at this "meso" intersection that innovation, competitiveness and investments can be understood. The aim of the project is to promote insight into how global conditions for growth affect the strategic options of Swedish industry. The goal is to provide relevant analysis to a broad target audience of decision makers.

Expected results and effects
