We help the public sector and manufacturing industry in Southern Sweden reach their digitalisation goals
An initiative co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund
We help you take your digitalisation projects from idea to reality
Digitalisation is changing the way we interact with customers, partners and citizens.
For businesses in the manufacturing industry, the digital shift means staying competitive and relevant in an interconnected world.
For the public sector, it’s a matter of meeting changing expectations, and using technology to create positive impact on society.
At DigIT Hub, we help organisations in southern Sweden reach their digitalisation goals – by providing a well-founded hub of tools, services, training opportunities, and partner networks.
Regardless of whether you are just getting started or have complex digitalisation challenges to tackle, DigIT Hub is here to help you along the way.

Digitalisation: How DigIT Hub can support you
LEARN: Skills & Training
DigIT Hub works closely with training centers, educational providers and research institutions to help build digital skills within your organisation. We build digital capacity for those currently employed, as well as for future generations.
NETWORK: Our Innovation Ecosystem
DigIT Hub provides access to an innovation ecosystem that offers a range of tools and services to help you identify, select and implement appropriate technologies and digital processes that meet your current needs.
There is broad consensus that it is not possible to continue with ‘business-as-usual’ if we are to achieve a sustainable and prosperous future.
Digitalisation helps organisations meet the changing expectations of customers, employees, and citizens. It’s about finding ways to perform work or deliver services that are efficient and sustainable in the long run. Through means of digitalisation, organisations are now able to tailor services to a higher degree, while also increasing productivity. What could digitalisation do for you?
Let us help you!
Stay relevant. Stay competitive. Stay part of the future.
Let’s Go Digital Together
You are not alone on your digitalisation journey. Through DigIT Hub, you get access to tools and expertise to meet you and your organisation exactly where you are – and get you where you want to be.
DigIT Hub is financially backed by the European Regional Development Fund and Region Skåne, and led by regional innovation clusters Mobile Heights, Media Evolution and IUC Syd in collaboration with Lund University (LTH) and Malmö University. DigIT Hub is also supported by key partners in the public sector, industry, academia and research.
I don't know where to start when it comes to digitalisation. Help!
Digitalisation means different things to different organisations, as do the needs and ability to implement digital initiatives.
We understand that it can feel like a jungle out there, and that it is difficult (and sometimes frustrating!) to know where to get started. No prior knowledge is needed to take part of DigIT Hubs services, and our team is here to support you and your organisation based on where you are currently at in your digitalisation process. The most important thing is the willingness to get started – and the fact that you are here is a great start. Let us support you and your organisation in taking the next steps, and tackle your digitalisation journey together.
