How can the games industry help develop traditional industry?
This question was asked when the project Intersective Game, in collaboration with Automation Region, hosted a lecture and workshop. The aim was to develop business, enhance processes, and foster new collaborations.
Heléne Olsson, Director Global Industry Innovation, from Kairos Future held a lecture on which trends are connected to the industry, automation, cutting-edge technology, and games methodology, and how the games industry and traditional industry can benefit from each other.
"It's very inspiring to witness firsthand the surge of creativity and tangible new collaboration projects between traditional industry and the games industry, which blur old boundaries and create new arenas for Skellefteå and the world," says Heléne Olsson.
The event was held in both Skellefteå and Luleå, attracting over fifty participants from various industry sectors. The workshop was led by Pernilla Lindmark, Project Manager of Intersective Game. During the day, exciting ideas emerged on how cutting-edge technology and game methodology can find new applications, for example in industry, healthcare, and everyday life.
With a focus on Skellefteå's societal transformation and environmental goals, games were created by 50 participants at an intensive Mashup Game Jam.
For the second time, a Game Studio Lunch was organized for game developers in Skellefteå. A relaxed and welcoming concept where game studios meet, have lunch, and discuss challenges and successes in the industry.
