ESS generates socio-economic benefit – what does Sweden do now to increase the impact?
Date and time
Monday, 30 May 2022 08:00 - 10:00
In 2021, the Swedish Research Council commissioned Lars Håkanson and Ari Kokko to analyse the socio-economic effects of the Swedish investments in ESS in the period 2010-2020. The overall conclusion from the study was that the engagement in ESS generated positive socio-economic effects for Sweden already during the construction phase. However, the most significant gains cannot be expected until the facility comes into operation in 2028.
We look forward to hearing the discussion about the conclusions in the report, and on what Sweden can and should do now to maximise benefit from ESS.
The Swedish Research Council is arranging the event, and the moderator for the day is Lars Börjesson, delegate on the ESS Council.
