Purpose and goal
The objectives of the projects were: To create an open model for cooperation where industrial firms, functions of society and newly arrived academics that results in increased innovation and integration. This objective is well fulfilled in the first version of the least viable prototype that was tested. Other objectives are also fulfilled as: mapping of stakeholders, project agreement, analyze of conducted workshop, market strategy etc.
Expected results and effects
The results are that we have better knowledge to scale up the created model for innovation and integration. The mapping of stakeholders helps us to understand how to build a consortium for an application to UDI Stage 2. The conducted workshop gave very positive results. Both the newly arrived academics and the industrial firm were very pleased. One of the participants rose up and spontaneously said ´I thank Sweden for what you are doing for us´.
