As a contribution to the tradition of Nordic-Baltic cooperation and the vision of strengthening the high value-added economies of our countries, this forum will devote its attention to STEM and the space economy as a resourceful and inspirational domain for innovation, cooperation, synergies and growth. The forum will take place on 22 September 2022 in Cēsis, Latvia.
STEM competencies are becoming the backbone of industrial competitiveness and thus, are enjoying a rapidly growing demand in Europe and beyond. At the same time, the space economy is gaining momentum globally, and it offers the Baltics and Nordics a favourable context for innovation-stimulating cooperation and STEM development: by inspiring curiosity for science, driving technology transfer and advancing the already well-developed capacities in the region’s space sectors.
The forum aims to inspire discussions and create insights into mission-oriented cooperation development, efficient use of investments, science and entrepreneurship collaboration for the benefit of the society, economy and environment as well as space becoming a catalyst for cooperation and growth of economies, industries and life-long.
The forum is organised in the framework of Nordic Days in Cēsis 2022 by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Riga, Cēsis Space Education Centre, the Ministry of Economics of the Republic of Latvia, the Nordic Council of Ministers Office in Latvia, Cēsis Municipality in cooperation with other Nordic Embassies.
