RIT stands for "Space for Innovation and Growth" and is an EU-funded project aimed at creating sustainable growth in the Norrbotten region and strengthening its role as Sweden's leading space region. Through a series of activities, this can be achieved and thus increases the space sector's capacity for research and innovation cooperation between the academic sector, industry and players in the innovation support system. In the long run, the project is expected to help the space industry become more important for regional economies as well as new innovations and increased growth.
