young and old with science and technology. We believe curiosity can
change the world.

The European Parliament visited Sliperiet
On June 8, a group of members from the Committee on
Regional Development at the European Parliament, visited Sliperiet.
The visit was one of the parts in a comprehensive 3-day program in
Umeå, with the aim of showing the visitors the areas and ways in
which northern Sweden is at leading edge, as well as the challenges
facing the region.
In the program, the hosts, the Europaforum Northern Sweden and
the Region of Västerbotten, placed great emphasis on providing
insight into the expansion within the areas of innovation, business
development, smart specialization, digitization, tourism, transport
infrastructure and bioeconomy - areas that are integrated in
various ways in Sliperiets´ activities.
