It is happening! The first event in the COM³ matchmaking series is set – how to build a tech community: Register now for the matchmaking events within the NSR-project COM³: Building competencies for competitive companies.

More than ever, rural areas are being praised for their quality of life. Yet they face major uncertainties when it comes to remain attractive places to live, work and invest. As part of the NSR project “COM³: building competencies for competitive companies”, the online event series “COM³ together” will take place in the coming months. Take advantage of this opportunity to hear success stories, meet and talk with interesting speakers, and expand your network and perspectives!

The first part of a series of 3 matchmaking sessions organised by the COM³ partners at the Alexanderson Institute will take place on 26 October from 14:00 to 15:00 on the topic “How to build a tech community?“. To answer this question, two interesting speakers will share their perspectives:

Micha Björck is the project manager of the Interreg project Futures by Design. She initiated Halland Tech Week, a regional event focused on engineering/IT/technology for SMEs in the Halland region, Sweden. She will share her insights and experiences in creating a regional event, focusing on both the keys to success and the pitfalls to avoid.

Christine Björklund is a copywriter and journalist who has written a report on behalf of the Alexanderson Institute that lays the groundwork for establishing the municipality of Varberg as an IT cluster – a Mecha of Tech! She interviewed researchers, SMEs, and regional and local stakeholders to find the secret sauce for successfully building a community.

The other two events in the series are:

  • How can we grow and innovate with open data? On 8 November
  • Regenerative tourism on 5 December
