This is Future Position X
We support development and growth to promote Health and Well-being
for the Citizens of the Smart, Sustainable and Viable City and Community.
Sustainable change can only be achieved in systems where the loadstars are Collaboration, Cooperation, Openness and Generosity.
We are collaborating with the eco-system through our four Platforms;
Research and Academy, Innovation, Incubation and Acceleration.
Future Position X is a Non-profit Organization founded in 2006 when regional actors gathered in an initiative, with the mission to take position as a well established Geospatial Information Cluster.
Today, Future Position X is a Policy-driven Gold Label Cluster, a Vinnväxt Initiative.
We focus on Health and Well-being in the Smart, Sustainable, Viable City and Community, connecting our actions to Agenda 2030 (The Global Goals for Sustainable Development).
We are a key stakeholder in empowering sustainable growth in the Region of Gävleborg and beyond.
The Vinnväxt initiative GEO LIFE REGION
The ten year Vinnväxt initiative is promoting Geo Health, creating development and growth in the area of Gävleborg Region and beyond. Read more about the Vinnväxt Initiative here.
The Global Goals
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for a better world by 2030.
Future Position X shares the understanding that all 17 goals are intertwined and equally important. We contribute by mainly focusing on two of these goals no 3; Good Health and Well-being and no 11; Sustainable Cities and Communities.
We cooperate/partner with
Quadruple helix actors such as innovators, entrepreneurs, companies, organizations, business, politicians, researchers, students, citizens, test pilots – everyone who wants to be a part of new innovations, companies, products and services, within Geo Health. This includes stakeholders implementing projects within research, development, monitoring and evaluation in both private and public sector.
Companies and organizations searching for innovation support or new models to encounter users, clients or markets – We help you find your way forward. We organize meetings between companies, organizations, researchers and users who stimulate and advance your business.
Researchers who seek collaboration or exchange with other researchers are free to use our extended national and international network. The criterion is for your research to somehow involve geographical information. A specific discipline is not required.
