Welcome to The Insider, a podcast about the key issues on Research & Innovation made by the INESC Brussels HUB team.

In today’s podcast we bring you our conversation with Charlotte Andersdotter. Charlotte is currently the Head of Office of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprises in Brussels and allowed us to dive into her 20 years of experience as an expat in the Brussels R&I arena. We can assure you there would be much more we would love to discuss about this issue with Charlotte, as she not only has an extremely interesting and rich professional experience that takes us back to her role as founder of ERRIN, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network, to her experience at the European Commission DG RTD, but she is also a good person, respectful of individuality, of difference and of the diversity across Europe.

We also explore: how well are the Swedish interests represented in Brussels? What is the role of a Brussels-based representation and its challenges vis-à-vis its home institutions? Is there a difference between the research and the innovation part, namely the representation of industry or is there complementarity? What role play the Nordic research and innovation councils such as Nordforsk or Norden?
