RIS3 Priorities

In Dalarna’s agenda for smart specialization, four areas are prioritized. The priorities are based on business sector strengths, clusters and societal actors. They also find support in the research profiles of Dalarna University and in resources from other universities. They can all, in different ways, qualify for international cooperation and attract research and innovation resources. To succeed in this, stakeholders must mobilize, identify needs and societal challenges, and show that there is capacity to contribute with solutions in cooperation with other parties.

Here, the smart specialization work is initiated in four areas of knowledge:

• advanced industry
• innovative experience production
• energy efficient society
• health and welfare

Region Dalarna is currently updating the S3-strategy to a S4 -strategy.

The new strategy ist estimated to be finished in 2022.
