Ulrika Ringdahl and Asbjørn Overgaard are the CEO’s of Invest in Skåne and Copenhagen Capacity – the two official investment promotion agencies in the Greater Copenhagen Region. The two organisations operate the place brand Greater Copenhagen Region since 2015.
The Greater Copenhagen Region stretches across Eastern Denmark and Southern Sweden creating the largest metropolitan area in the Nordics, an attractive hub for foreign investment and international talent. Eastern Denmark and Southern Sweden are both partially strong in Technology, Life science and Green tech. Combining forces and resources to attract foreign investments and international talents is a winning concept.
What benefits does cross border collaboration bring? What challenges come with it? And how can we turn them into success?
For years, the two organisations have worked together to market the life science cluster Medicon Valley to an international audience. The name is highly recognized internationally. What made Medicon Valley so successful? And what are the lessons learned from the last 14 years of collaboration?
Ulrika and Asbjørn will talk about how to collaborate across the border to attract talents and businesses.
