Forum Förnyelse - an investment for increased regional collaboration and innovation 

Jönköping International Business School at Jönköping University runs a cross-industry project together with Swerea-SWECAST and Jonkoping Chamber of Commerce.

The project is called Forum Förnyelse and is aimed at furthering collaboration and knowledge building around innovation and renewal in the regional business sector. One goal is to create forums where operators from different parts of the business sector, the scientific community and the business supporting system can exchange information and experiences.

Initiators of the project are a group of researchers at the research centre CEnSE (Centre for Entrepreneurship and Spatial Economics) at Jönköping International Business School. CEnSE has been assigned almost 7 million SEK for the project. The main financier is EU’s regional development fund, but also Region Jönköpings län and the three organizations of the project contribute financially.

During spring the project will arrange an opening seminar at Jönköping University for the business sector, politicians and civil servants of the regional administration. The seminar is also open for the public.
