The purpose of this project is to strengthen the competence in the mining cluster Georange and by doing this support the continued development of participating companioes.

The overall purpose of the Swedish  S3 Cluster Platform Pilot is to strengthen the clusters prioritized within the smart specialization strategies of their regions as well as their work addressing innovation and development in the private sector.  Tillväxtverket considers the clusters as one important tool – among others – for SMEs’ renewal and growth. This is important to the organisation, as SMEs are the central mission of the National Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket) and – through this Pilot –  in alignment with the regional smart specialization. The  S3 Cluster Pilot Platform will run from autumn 2018 until at least the beginning of 2021.

The project is financed by Skellefteå municipality and is a part of the Swedish S3 cluster pilot.

Project owner is Georange AB and Goodbye Kansas Labs which later became Creative Crowd AB is one of the project partners.
