26 February 2021 - CARPE DIGEM  project
Interreg Europe funded CARPE DIGEM, or 'Catalysing Regions in Peripheral and Emerging Europe towards Digital Innovation Ecosystems' project, in which ERNACT participates as a partner, is organising a virtual study visit to Västerbotten (Sweden), through eXpression Umeå and Region Västerbotten partners, on the 4th of March.

Among others, Swedish partners will share their digital innovation expertise and support system of Umeå and they will make an introduction to the regional DIGEM of Västerbotten. Partners will explain how to use the the design process to get the most out of meetings and workshops and how have they connected regional manufacturers with students of the world’s leading design school Umeå Institute of Design and have together created consumer goods for the future. 

The virtual s
tudy visit will continue with a presentation about the RISE Institute Umeå. Through design and prototype-driven design processes, RISE challenges preconceived notions, limitations and problems to better understand human and planetary needs and find new opportunities and innovations. They work with transformative methods and have expertise in, among other things, interaction design, product design, sound design, visualization and user experiences.

Afterwards, they are going to present practical examples of digital transformation processes in the region, where methodology and organization in digital service innovation are shown from anchoring, problem and needs analysis to testbeds and implementation of new praxis.

Finally, they are going to share a case presentation from Storuman Municipality in the field of digital health, new transport systems such as electric flights / drones and green conversion of energy systems.
