On 28th March, local stakeholders in the Seinäjoki region of Finland were invited to find out more about the region’s investment in research and innovation and to share experience with partners in Skellefteå, Sweden, involved in similar work there. Around 20 people attended the meeting, including representatives from universities within the University Consortium of Seinäjoki, the managing directors of the region’s Chamber of Commerce and Regional Organization of Enterprises, SMEs in the Seinäjoki area working in collaboration with UCS, and public sector leaders including the Mayor of the City of Seinäjoki. The meeting formed part of a wider series of events to share a broader view of the development of the Seinäjoki region, with visits to Frami Ltd and Foodwest Ltd, and discussions about the role of business incubators and how to involve SMEs in research and development work.
