Purpose and goal

The project has created an environment in which two prototypes for innovations that contribute to ecological and social sustainability have been developed. One innovation facilitates the sale of second-hand products that are donated to Return Stores, which benefits the circular economy. The second innovation is about providing organizers of minor events in the countryside with data about visitors that can be used to develop the event and provide support in discussions with sponsors, etc.

The code for the two innovation pilots is available at A video that presents Innovation for the Return Shop is available at A report about business models that should be considered for a data driven lab has been published. The expectation is that networks around AI / ML will continue and that prototypes will be further developed in other projects.

The knowledge structure consisted of the University´s work on game rules for a lab that makes it a possible partner for companies and other actors as well as organizing seminars to disseminate knowledge about technical and non-technical aspects of data-driven innovation.
