In cooperation with the Embassy of Sweden, on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, Swedish Day was held at the Faculty of Economics and Business - Zagreb.
The  welcoming speeches held by the dean Dr. Sanja Sever Mališ and the ambassador H. E. Diane Helen Madunic were accompanied by a rich program with participation of seven Swedish companies - AstraZeneca, Bjelin, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Foreo, IKEA, Securitas and SKF.

A panel was held with representatives of Bjelin, Foreo, Ericsson Nikola Tesla and IKEA, through which students could learn more about Swedish business culture and the way Swedish companies work. The panel was followed by FIKA - a traditional Swedish break for coffee and cakes, where students had the opportunity to network with Swedish companies.

The second part of the event consisted of a lecture by Emma Bäcke from Vinnova Innovation Agency who explained to students how to create a system in which innovation can succeed, followed by a presentation from a  Swedish student
