Innovationsklivet will facilitate people with ideas and solutions to problems or challenges by clarifying what innovation-promoting services are in Gävleborg and where they can get support in their entrepreneurship, regardless of where in the county they are or who they are.
With common forces and competences, a coherent, clear and accessible regional support system will be established to capture ideas that can be new innovations. The long-term goal is that this in turn will lead to more innovations, increased competitiveness and increased employment in Gävleborg.

In the fall of 2018, a pilot hack was conducted around a number of focus areas, XR technology, smart information flows, smart cities and IoT. Where the participants were allowed to collaborate in interdisciplinary groups during a day with the opportunity to stay overnight. A creative process that provided solutions and collaborations that formed the basis for the continued development of the concept. Participants came from both one-man companies and major consulting companies. Academics and public actors were also represented. The presentation provided positive feedback, and discussions are already underway about using the program even outside the framework of the X-hackathon. With the pilot as a starting point, a more focused concept was then created, focusing on technology.
