The Policy Tool nr. 3 is presented by Maria Strömberg, Director at Business Region Gothenburg, who works with Clusters and Innovation in the Gothenburg Region. Due to their experience within the city and as a region, Business Region Gothenburg have contributed with their knowledge on this Policy Tool. The viode presentation of the Policy Tool provides knowledge on how cities and regions often face many challenges for development or service delivery of the city, and how to overcome those challenges by addressing the challenges and invite actors to contribute with new innovative solutions in order to solve the challenges. Furthermore, she talks about other possible solutions, how to position your city or region as a buyer - and how Business Regions Gothenburg is testing the policy tool by being a testbed through their Living Lab Event this spring.

You can learn much more about overcoming these challenges by watching the video presentation on Policy Tool nr. 3: Position your city or region as a ”buyer” – Seeking innovative solutions.
