Description: The national excellence centre CiiR was established in 2011 with support from VINNOVA, regional authorities and the universities in Luleå and Umeå. CiiR operates in close collaboration with international expertise and policy-makers on different levels to develop new knowledge on innovation system development with a specific focus on non-metropolitan areas and the possibilities emerging from ICT and digital innovation. The centre is based on collaboration between eight research subjects and R&D centres located to the two northernmost universities in Sweden, but operates with partners from all over the world to develop new knowledge.
