Smart Housing Småland is a regional and national meeting place. The innovation environment should be understood as a network where Smart Housing Småland initiates and creates meeting places around current themes and common interests together with participants from academia, business and society. The meeting places can be individual events or long-term initiatives. Seminars and meetings are arranged in-house, but often in collaboration with other organizations or in connection with projects related to Smart Housing Småland.

VILLAGE2030 (BY2030)

The platform BY2030 is a long-term investment in a meeting place for stakeholders in sustainable construction. BY2030 is a meeting place / platform that will facilitate the creation of research and development projects in collaboration when building a sustainable society. This is done by getting the different perspectives from academia, society and business to meet and have conversations about themes and issues that are of common interest. BY2030 will contribute to increased collaboration and increased ability to innovate and accelerate research and contribute to competence support. This is done by arranging seminars and meetings and developing study visits for stakeholders in wood construction in collaboration with the region, municipality, academy and business.
