Our main focus is to find a way to match our ICT companies with small- and middlesized enterprises that wants to develop their business through digital transformation. This is also a challange in the public sector in which we are working closely with the municipality of Karlstad and the county of Värmland to find ways to have the ICT companies support the public sector when implementing digital technology in their organizations.

We also work for the need of support of competens for the companies in our cluster. We do this by collaboration with the university in Karlstad, other schools with IT education and networks around the region. We are focusing on a way to integrate the refugees, with a university degree or great experience in IT, into the Swedish ICT companies to increase the diversity and create new business opportunities through new networks and new knowledge.
