The BSR Stars S3 project arranges a two-day Study Tour to Karlstad, Värmland on November 28-29, 2017. The Study Tour focuses on bioeconomy and digitalization. The innovation system in Värmland is formed around several regional cluster initiatives and innovation platforms. The cluster initiatives have been set up around already strong sectors such as pulp and paper, the packaging industry, steel and manufacturing, the information and communications sector and the food industry. The Paper Province (pulp, paper and machinery) and Compare (IT and service sector) were early initiatives.
