Game Hub Scandinavia

  • About

    The gaming industry is currently experiencing impressive growth rates and this positive trend seems to be on-going. Scandinavia is one of the world leaders when it comes to innovative products within this field.

    The EU-project Game Hub Scandinavia wishes to make the gaming industry a primary source of income for the Scandinavian countries: Denmark and Sweden. The goal is to generate 100 new companies and 400 new jobs in the Scandinavian countries through incubating new businesses and knowledge sharing.

    The project is home to three incubators:

    • The Game Incubator: Operated by Gothia Science Park AB and positioned in Skövde, Sweden (since 2004) and Gothenburg (since 2015)
    • Game Hub Denmark: Operated by Viden Djurs and Dania Erhvervsakademi in Grenaa, Denmark
    • Arsenalet Game Hub: Operated by The Animation Workshop/VIA University College and housed by the creative working space Arsenalet in Viborg, Denmark

    Game Hub Scandinavia is funded by the EU regional development fund Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak under their priority area called: “Employment.” Game Hub Scandinavia is a continuation of the knowledge gained from the previous successful project Scandinavian Game Developers. The Scandinavian Game Developers won an EU RegioStar Award in 2015 for its innovative approach.
