Towards a Knowledge Society - the Nordic Experience
Organised by the European Commission and its Swedish partners, the Ministerial Conference "- the Nordic Experience" was held on 14 -15 November 2005 in Gothenburg.
The Conference was focussed on the EU becoming "the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world", by making the best use of available public funding and especially EU Structural and other funding.
Besides EU-ministers and members of the European Commission also other leading representatives of the political, academical and economical world, in total about 300 persons, were participating.
Volvo Technology contributed with a well visited exhibition and a demonstrator truck to promote the active safety applications of PReVENT and especially it's subprojects SAFELANE and APALACI to decision makers and interested conferees.
