Visualising Innovation in Östergötland, East Sweden
The partnership of the EmpInno project convened in the city of Norrköping, East Sweden, on 14th and 15th February for their fourth transnational meeting. Hosted by the Region of Östergötland, the partners further exchanged about how to raise organisational capacity to work with smart specialisation strategies and about general issues in the RIS3 process. To simplify the communication with internal and external stakeholders, the partners started the visual process of creating short videos, to spread the word about their region and their strengths. The partners from the Region Östergötland presented their regional innovation system and the RIS3 and discussed with the partnership about the approach to support regional enabling platforms instead of choosing priorities (you can find more information on the smart specialisation strategy in the download section here). Finally, the partners were impressed by a study trip to the research and science centre “Visualisation Centre C” that creates mind-blowing interactive digital experiences by combining state-of-the-art visualisation technology with intuitive interaction design. The initiative “Visual Sweden” is a part of the region's smart sepcialisation strategy that fosters innovation processes and was awarded by the highly competitive National Swedish innovation Programme “Vinnväxt” as winner a funding perspective for up to ten years.
