The Nordic Cooperation Programme for Innovation and Business Policy 2014-2017 has identified five new so-called lighthouse projects that has been approved by the Nordic Ministers of Trade and Industry. Nordic Innovation is together with our cooperation partners still working on the content of the projects, and the project pages will be continuously updated over the next months.

Innovative Nordic Welfare Solutions - strengthening the Nordic region as an innovative and leading region within health and welfare

Nordic Built Cities - building on the Nordic Built experiences

Innovative Nordic Digital Solutions - making the Nordic region a digital pioneer

Nordic Partnership for Entrepreneurship and Finance - promoting entrepreneurship and business by strengthening entrepreneurial skills and improving access to finance

Nordic Partnership for Expansion of Cultural and Creative Industries - strengthening the competitiveness of the Nordic cultural and creative industries in a global perspective

You can still find information about the 2011-2013 lighthouse projects here.
