The NordicsThe Nordic Region is the 11th largest economy in the world with 26 million people.
We top many international rankings in areas such as transparency, trust, the environment, gender equality and happiness, which also underscore our urban trends.
The Nordic Region has one of the most highly educated populations in the world. This results in a high level of entrepreneurship and innovation, with a focus on smart, sustainable solutions on an urban and international level.

Nordic grown and international companies share these values and operate based on openness, trust and holistic solutions involving many stakeholders; values which are increasingly important for urban developments projects in cities around the world.
