On Monday, May 13, a Letter of Intent was signed between Washington State and Sweden for collaboration to strengthen research, technological development, innovation, trade promotion, and policy exchange and development in climate, energy, and sustainability.


It was signed by Governor Inslee for Washington State and State Secretary Sara Modig on behalf of Sweden at the Nordic Innovation Summit by the National Nordic Museum.

Sweden-US Green Transition Initiative is honored to be assigned to drive actions around policy exchange, development, and best practices and to, on the Swedish side, lead cooperation between Innovation clusters together with the Innovation Cluster Accelerator Program (ICAP) on the Washington side and to support the adoption of solutions to lower Greenhouse gas emissions.
