In a three-year EU project, we are building the Creative North industry cluster for increased collaboration, dissemination of knowledge and innovation.

Together, creative small and medium-sized companies form the largest private employer in cultural and creative industries in northern Sweden. But the industry is undergoing major changes, with increased demands on digitization, supply of expertise, greater profitability, higher pace of innovation and new business models. Through a cluster, companies can be helped to meet the challenges of the future. A cluster is a geographical concentration of several competing companies in the same industry. Simply explained, it is a network that brings business together and creates values ​​for each other while competing. Companies in such networks find that they grow faster, sell more and have a better time finding skilled labor. In the Creative North cluster, companies can be helped to meet the challenges, secure their offerings and ensure survival and attractiveness in the national and international market. Then we also contribute to more jobs and growth in the region.

The Creative North project will explore solutions to strengthen the innovation power of the cluster's actors through development and innovation programs for business leaders / managers, project managers and creators, as well as develop strategies for securing long-term competence needs for companies. In order to give the cluster the best conditions to live on, a strategy will also be worked out for how collaboration in the industry can continue. The strategy will be delivered to municipalities, the region, academia and educational actors, as a basis for their continued efforts to strengthen creative industries.

The initiative for the Creative North cluster formation comes from the companies themselves. Today, 11 creative companies participate: Oh my, In The Cold, More Digital Studio, Tromb, Sigmar Metodbyrå, Yours, Vinter, Mera Media och Henson pr, Eriksson/Nord Agency och Changemaker Educations.. The goal is for the cluster to grow to 18 companies. You are most welcome to contact me for more information.

Funders are the European Regional Development Fund, Region Norrbotten, Piteå Municipality, Luleå Municipality, Boden Business Park, Sparbanken Nord and Luleå University of Technology.
