In 2009 and 2010, Business Sweden Brazil organized events in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Niterói and Northeastern capitals of Salvador and Recife. Seminars were organized in each of the host cities with presentations by experts, government officials and particitating companies. The events offered the opportunity to interact with stakeholders both through structured discussions, as well as during breaks.
The events enhanced the individual companies' solutions by putting them in context. With the positive feedback from both companies and hosts, Business Sweden decided to use some of the new funds available within the Environmental Technology Initiative to conduct another SymbioCity activity.
The event is planned for Q3 or Q4 of 2014. More information to follow.
