Region Halland (SE) The best place to live

Halland is a region on the west coast of southern Sweden that offers beautiful nature comprising beaches, forest and lakes. Halland may be small in terms of size, but it is big in terms of growth. Region Halland is responsible for providing a good healthcare service to everyone who lives or spends time in Halland. We also work actively within a number of other areas that affect how it is to live and work in Halland, such as trade and industry, culture and infrastructure. We want Halland to be the best place to live.

Which are the organisation’s thematic competences and experiences relevant for the project?

Region Halland is as the public partner responsible for the Growth strategy 2014-2020 and has been co-financing and coordinating several projects regarding innovation and entrpreneurship within EU's different programmes. Several projects concern start-up mechanisms and new entreprenurship. A specific competence and area of interest is Green Arena and Health Technology Centre Halland.


What is the benefit for the organisation from participating in the project?

Region Halland is the main responsible public agency for the Innovation System of Halland. A benefit is to improve the Innovation System to reach the goals in the Growth Strategy 2014-2020. As the project aims to develop a nonconventional start-up programme Region Halland will gain knowledge by jointly develop, test and disseminate this service together with other public authorities. This will be implemented as a case in our cooridination of different public agencies.
