Project: DigIT Hub Sweden
DigIT Hub Sweden is one of four digital innovation hubs in Sweden with focus on bringing businesses into the future through a one-stop-shop with a wide range of services, competences, and resources. An offer that now becomes reality as you get access to our support for the digital transition to Smart industry and smart societies.
Digitalisation has changed how we interact with customers, partners, and citizens.
Digital transitions are now needed for companies in the manufacturing industry to remain competitive and relevant in an increasingly connected world. For the public sector, it is a matter of meeting citizens’ changing expectations and to use new technology to create positive impact on society.
At DigIT Hub Sweden, we help organisations in southern Sweden reach their digitalisation goals, by providing a well-founded hub of tools, services, education opportunities, and partner networks. Regardless of whether you have only just started or are dealing with complex digitalisation challenges, DigIT Hub Sweden is here to help you along the way.
DigIT Hub Sweden has four focus areas:
LEARN: Competence and education
DigIT Hub Sweden consists of three higher education institutions (Linnaeus University, Lund University, and Malmö University) and RISE. In addition, DigIT Hub Sweden has close collaborations with other education centres and education suppliers to help build digital competence in your organisation. We build digital capacity for current employees but also for future generations.
COURAGE TO TEST: Test environments
Environments that make it possible to test and demonstrate before you invest in new tools or new equipment that facilitates or enables digitalisation. This is offered in both digital and physical environments. As one step in this, Linnaeus University opens up its IoT Lab, its Business Lab, its data-driven development, and EPIC to offer support and help to more organisations.
If you want to test and develop an idea with support from researchers and others, there are great opportunities for this through what we call our Missions. If your organisation is chosen for the Missions programme, our team and our network of partners will work together with you for six months to realise your digitalisation idea. The result will be a concrete digital measure that is implemented in your organisation.
MEET OTHERS: Partner networks
A broad offer of activities within the framework of DigIT Hub Sweden enables you to expand your circle of contacts, meet new partners, customers, etc. Through DigIT Hub Sweden, you will also get access to an innovation ecosystem that offers a set of tools and services to help you identify, select, and implement suitable technology and digital processes that meet your current needs.
INVEST: Funding support
DigIT Hub Sweden makes sure that you are never alone on your digital journey, with direct access to funding opportunities and expert support, and a network of investors and business developers at regional, national, and European level.
