Nordic Blockchain Alliance

Six Nordic business clusters in the lifestyle industry want to create, connect, and increase knowledge and strategic competencies within digital product passports and blockchain technology. They stand together in a new Nordic Blockchain Alliance.

Blockchain technology offers the possibility of exchanging product and company data in a way that could be both cost-effective and safe for Nordic SMEs. A wide range of information can be carried in a blockchain, including data that documents product history, supply chain, environmental impact, compliance, contract details, and user instructions. The blockchain-based solutions can also facilitate circular business models and carry a future European Product Passport.

The project aims to create a Nordic blockchain alliance to explore the potential of a common Nordic blockchain by drawing on different experiences and knowledge sources from Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.

Project goals

The project will include a diverse range of lifestyle, creative companies, and start-ups to create and connect a strong knowledge pool across the Nordics regarding the potential of blockchain technology. Moreover, to analyze experiences and case stories and align this with the EU strategy for eco-design and the product passport. This will allow SMEs to access the information and knowledge to support their transition to a more traceable and transparent business.

Target groups

The target group is lifestyle companies that want to act proactively to meet upcoming challenges and possibilities from regulatory or customer demands on transparency and documentation. Moreover, companies that want to explore possible advantages of using blockchain technology to develop and deepen collaboration in a shared value chain. At last, the project wants to attract solution providers, start-ups, and scholars working with specific applications.


The following activities will be carried through during the project period:

Workpackage 1: Knowledge pool on Blockchain

Collecting known use cases and research to create and connect a strong knowledge pool on Blockchain.

Completing a first blockchain toolbox for SMEs, supporting them with knowhow on how to get a successful start utilizing blockchain technology

 Can we flip the burden of future compliance and use it as a competitive advantage?

In the Nordic Blockchain Alliance we believe so and we are working towards a stronger collaboration across the Nordics.
At this roundtable we hope to inspire people from the fashion-, furniture- & design industry as well as tech providers and opinion leaders on how we can collaborate. We will also present cases that  already work with this when it comes to data and transparency.

We will explore Nordic cases from the newly launch Nordic Knowledge pool. Deloitte will share the latest research on the topic ‘Can digital trust increase export’.  Copenhagen Business School will share a possible model for a Nordic digital collaboration.

We look forward to an insightful day together with a great networking lunch in beautiful surroundings!
