No 9. Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Within the Ski Tour 2020 region, from Östersund to Trondheim, a working and sustainable infrastructure is crucial for the region's development. It facilitates the activities of businesses in the region and it is vital for the people who live and work here.

Good infrastructure also makes it possible to promote new innovations and sustainable industries within the region. Ski Tour 2020 wish to promote infrastructure that reduces the impact on the climate and the environment. We also wish to find new solutions within the framework of the event and thereby reduce the environmental and climate footprint of the tour.

Ski Tour 2020 contributions to number 9

>> The Ski Tour 2020 and Vy partnership will prove that it is possible to travel and transport goods in a sustainable way within the region. Ski Tour 2020 hope that the public transportation infrastructure will develop and make it possible for more people to choose sustainable transportation.

>> Via our partnership with Vattenfall we wish to contribute further to the already existing charging station infrastructure for electric vehicles.

>> Cooperation across the borders promote innovation and enterprises. The cooperation between the Swedish and Norwegian Ski Associations is unique and it generates a foundation for further cooperation in the future. The same applies to the local organizing committees in Sweden and Norway.

>> By creating ways of communication for businesses on both sides of and across the border the bonds between different operatives are strengthened. This allows for cooperation even after Ski Tour 2020 is over. This in turn may create jobs which strengthens societies on both sides of the border.

A functioning and resilient infrastructure is the foundation of every successful community. To meet future challenges, our industries and infrastructure must be upgraded. For this, we need to promote innovative sustainable technologies and ensure equal and universal access to information and financial markets. This will bring prosperity, create jobs and make sure that we build stable and prosperous societies across the globe.
