In August 2020, HolonIQ announced our first annual Nordic-Baltic EdTech 50 — a list of the 50 most innovative education technology companies in the Nordic-Baltic region.

The regional collaboration format of the Nordic-Baltic eight (NB8) brings together five Nordic and three Baltic countries – Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. This well-established regional ecosystem also supports cooperation for EdTech in addition to strong national bodies. The region is globally recognised for leading in pedagogy, innovation and education systems and the 2020 Nordic-Baltic EdTech 50 recognises and celebrates those teams based in the region who are supporting education innovation and impact.

The region has a thriving EdTech ecosystem with innovative solutions in advanced technology such as Virtual and Augmented Reality, AI, STEAM & Coding and Robotics through to Language Learning, Teacher & Student Support, Learning Resources and Environments being selected into the HolonIQ 2020 Nordic-Baltic EdTech 50.
