The Innovate 2030 project series addresses central and relevant problems facing our society. This includes the search for solutions to the major challenges for a sustainable future. Finding such solutions requires the cooperation of politics, science and business with new partners, such as the digital generation and tech scene.

In order to be able to counteract global environmental changes, new forms of knowledge creation and exchange are needed. In particular, however, we need to enter into exchange with the younger generation and jointly develop innovations when it comes to securing and creating good and sustainable  livelihoods and quality of life for future generations.
