The Arena Programme is intended to promote more innovation in business and industry, through collaboration between businesses, knowledge and R&D institutions, and the public sector.

The programme targets regional business communities that have a high concentration of companies within one industry, value chain or area of expertise, and that have relevant competence centres.

There must be a potential for increased innovation and value creation by way of increased collaboration between these parties. The programme offers financial and professional support for implementation of three-year development projects.

In special cases, and on condition that they meet certain criteria, some projects can receive support for an additional two years.
