Tillväxtverket: the regional impact masters
Tillväxtverket is the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth. It strengthens regional development and facilitates enterprises and entrepreneurship throughout Sweden. Between 2009 and 2012, the Swedish government’s action plan for cultural and creative industries served as Tillväxtverket’s compass for various support schemes. At the moment, the CCI division finalizes its report about the past financing period and will investigate into the future course of CCI support in Sweden during 2013.
Tillväxtverket will take part in C2C’s regional round tables and monthly analysis meetings, assemble and lead the Swedish delegation to the bar camp, nominate an expert for the book sprint and participate in the writing-up of the project findings.
