The project targets new construction and renovation of education infrastructure in the City of Malmö, in southern Sweden. The sub-projects include elementary schools and pre-schools in different parts of the city.
The project will contribute to human capital formation and hence the knowledge economy in Sweden. It is aimed at upgrading and modernising the city of Malmö's pre-primary, primary and lower secondary education estate in order to improve the learning environment for students and the working conditions for teachers. Additionally, the refurbishments completed as a part of the project are expected to improve the energy efficiency of the education infrastructure.
