Swedish-Dutch Innovation & Sustainability Summit

__________
The world is facing fundamental challenges, from disruptions lead by the technological revolution, to climate change and a workforce with new conditions to relate to. Sweden and the Netherlands celebrate centuries of friendship and trade, and our business and political spheres are tightly interlinked as a result of it. At the Swedish-Dutch Innovation and Sustainability Summit we look at our joint future ahead, the challenges, and how we can learn from each other.

The Innovation & Sustainability Summit is about 21st century leadership, bringing together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and academics from both Sweden and the Netherlands, to address the greater trends facing us, from tech to climate change, the future workforce or global trade. 

Through keynotes, panels, and interactive talks with a line-up of leading speakers from both Sweden and the Netherlands, the summit is a great way to connect and get inspired by the Swedish-Dutch business community.
