About DigIT Hub

DigIT Hub is an initiative that helps companies and the public sector in southern Sweden digitalise, with financial support from the European Regional Development Fund and Region Skåne.

Background

Digitalisation is a broad concept and the digitalisation needs within each organization varies. Yet, we know that digital technology and infrastructure have a critical role in our private lives and business environments. 

Through DigIT Hub, we use digitalisation as an engine to create sustainable and efficient working methods, strengthened competitiveness, and better adapted services. We help organizations in Skåne and Blekinge to keep up with the digital transition, and meet the expectations of customers, employees and citizens who are becoming increasingly digital.

Founding Partners

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.

European Digital Innovation Hub

In 2020, DigIT Hub was established as a regional Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) in southern Sweden. DigIT Hub has since been selected by the Swedish Innovation Agency, Vinnova, as a Swedish candidate to also receive status as a European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH).

European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) will function as one-stop shops that help companies dynamically respond to the digital challenges and become more competitive. By providing access to technical expertise and experimentation as well as the possibility to “test before invest”, EDIHs help companies improve business/production processes, products, or services using digital technologies. They also provide innovation services, such as financing advice, training, and skills development that are needed for a successful digital transformation. Environmental issues are also taken into account, in particular with regard to energy consumption and low carbon emissions.
