We work to foster an excellent business and innovation environment for low carbon economy solutions to attract investments, competencies and create sustainable growth in Northern Europe.

Når coronaen engang slipper sit jerngreb om Europa, er det tid til at tænke nyt. For nytænkning er nødvendig for at indfri Nordeuropas potentiale som grøn megaregion. Åbningen af Femern Bælt i 2029 er en vigtig første brik i puslespillet. Men det må ikke blive den sidste. Derfor skal vi nu målrette vores indsatser for at udnytte det grønne vækstpotentiale i Nordeuropa.

The STRING Secretariat forms the permanent organisation, and the Secretariat’s task is to facilitate and create the best possible framework for implementing the initiatives.
