Every part of the country should contribute towards Sweden's sustainable growth and development. Sweden's regional growth policy focuses primarily on creating sustainable regional growth and development, regional competitiveness, attractive housing and living conditions, and a high level of service for women and men in all parts of the country. The EU cohesion policy is also important in the implementation of the regional growth policy in Sweden. Through the Structural Funds, Sweden receives money for various development projects within its regions.
The Swedish Innovation Strategy is a long-term effort to maintain and further develop Sweden's leading position in terms of innovation climate and innovation capacity in order to address the global societal challenges, increase competitiveness and renew welfare and utility services of the future.
