Oxford Research has been commissioned by Luleå University of Technology (LTU) to evaluate the innovation support project Datacenter Innovation Region.

Datacenter Innovation Region is co-founded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project intends to strengthen the innovation capacity of the two northernmost Swedish regions, namely Norrbotten and Västerbotten, in the field of datacentres and cloud solutions.

Oxford Research will conduct an on-going evaluation of the project in the period 2019-2021. The assignment includes data collection through interviews and desk research. Insights into project developments and results will be reported through continuous dialogue with the project management and other stakeholders.
