With over 20 years of experience within Telecom and IT, the area Digital is an obvious focus area for Blue Science Park. A Vinnova report, presented in January of 2016, shows that Karlskrona is 1 of 5 clusters in Sweden with high relevance for digitisation. We are also identified as Sweden’s centre for the Internet of Things. They also write “One of the world’s foremost ICT clusters gets a kick-start after 20 years – TelecomCity takes on a heightened role as a Science Park.”
Our biggest strength is that we have the entire ecosystem in place, from strong research and education at Blekinge University of Technology, including 3 Master of Science programmes, a Gaming and Software development programme, Data Security and Data Science (from 2018), to product development companies such as Ericsson and users/operators like Telenor, Sierra Wireless and IIOX. We also have close proximity between these partners, which makes us ideal as a test bed with our new and open Blue IoT Test bed.
Blue IoT Test bed will also offer IoT Live – a course open to all, which aims to provide the participants basic knowledge and tools to develop services themselves within IoT. The course is aimed at individuals and companies.
