Call Strategic innovation program Electronic Components and Systems. Competence nodes 2015.

Purpose and goal

We find that the competence hub has strengthen the Swedish innovation system by offering contacts to core competence within the field of design of electronic, integrated circuits and systems. Through presentations, meetings and surveys we find that the activities have been well received. The concept of a hub has been supported by Swedish companies and has inspired us. They mean that it is important to continue to strengthen the innovation system and support the contacts between academy and industry.

Expected results and effects

Through workshops, meetings and discussions and dissemination in various forms, the hub has offered a more complete view of the national competence in design of integrated circuits and systems, as well as highlighting the challenges and possibilities. We find that the hub has strengthen the Swedish innovation system by finding and defining the core competence in our area. The activities have been well received among the partners we have met. It has also resulted in joint research applications.

Planned approach and implementation

We have taken part in and presented the hub´s competence and possibilites in the workshops offered by Smartare Elektroniksystem, for example their inspiration days. - We have had many face-to-face discussions with various players in the Swedish electronics market. - We have branded and been visible in social media, on the web, at our university and colleagues and in conferences. - We have compiled a list of different actors (big as well as small) and sorted them into categories and published that on our web page.
