A stronger game industry in the region with more game studios, higher turnover, more employees and more equality witch will lead to creation of a number of international game successes.

Innovation Game 2.0 started in the summer of 2019. The project goal is to strengthen the gaming industry in the region by contributing to a more diverse and inclusive labor market. We want an industry that contributes to the development of innovation know-how in other industries, attracts the migration and formation of companies and reduces the flight of skills.

  • Increased visibility
  • Increased expertise in the innovation and education systems
  • More gaming innovations 
  • More investments
  • More meeting places 

These sub-goals will be achieved with activities such as local meeting places such as Game jams and creative boxes, pitch events, arranging and participation of major events and business development for SMEs.

It is a cooperation project between Skellefteå Science City (owner), Luleå Business Region, Piteå Science Park and Boden Utveckling as partners. The overall goal of the project is to support a more diversified labor market and business sector in northern Sweden, by developing and industry that is attractive and inclusive and to strengthen the gaming industry in the region.
