Digitalisation for Increased Competitiveness
Sweden’s competitiveness will increase if we take advantage of digitalisation opportunities. Which strategies, policies and concrete measures are needed?

Housing policy on doubtful foundations
The Swedish National Board of Housing (Boverket) predicts that 700,000 new homes will need to be built over the next ten years. But the question is who will live in these new homes?

How Sweden will win the green race
A green race has begun to see which country and which companies will deliver the materials, products and business models of the future.

Challenge-driven entrepreneurship
Businesses are shedding their skin in new partnerships. Are we doing enough to stimulate entrepreneurship? Do we need joint action on innovation?

World-class knowledge
School results, the free school choice system and instruction. What are the problems and solutions? Real and important knowledge can be developed in open conversation.
