Everything began several hundreds of years ago, with rich ore deposits and wide expanses of forests across our whole province. Thanks to these significant natural resources, an industry has grown, and allows Dalarna county to earn approximately SEK 70 billion annually, of which a significant portion is from export.
Dalarna is currently at the absolute forefront within the areas of power transmission and advanced steel industry, even from a global perspective. In order to care for the advanced industry’s unique core skills, a close partnership has been built via clusters such as High Voltage Valley, Triple Steelix and Byggdialog Dalarna. In turn, they create a network of knowledge partners such as the larger universities, regional colleges, industry research institutes, and other regional, national and international innovation environments.
