Sweden – Arctic Game Lab

Arctic Game Lab is an organization with the objective to create and nurture a strategic platform for the game industry in northern Sweden.

The focus of Arctic Game Lab is to support, and be a part of the creation, of a stable gaming industry platform in the north of Sweden.

GOAL:
1000 game students
100 game companies
10 game successes
1 region

Since 2016, a regional investment in the gaming industry – funded by the municipalities of Umeå, Skellefteå, Piteå, Luleå and Boden – has been underway in northern Sweden. Skellefteå Science City is tasked with driving this initiative, with financial support from the municipalities, local regions and the EU project, Innovation Game 2.0.

The project goal is to strengthen the gaming industry in the region by contributing to a more diverse and inclusive labor market. We want an industry that contributes to the development of innovation know-how in other industries, attracts the migration and formation of companies and reduces the flight of skills.

– Increased visibility
– Increased expertise in the innovation and education systems
– More gaming innovations
– More investments
– More meeting places

Therefore the focus of the Arctic Game Lab is to support, and be a part of the creation, of a stable gaming industry platform in the north of Sweden.
