The conference was all about demonstrating the possibilities of the new Design Hub and how collaboration is made possible. Actors from RISE, Umeå Kommun, Umeå University and many other companies and organizations were present during the day.
During the conference, eight different workshops in parallel sessions were held, covering a multitude of topics. One of the topics were how technology connects to kids and movement.
A demo space was open all day at which Nord InC displayed a roll-up alongside a running demo of the DigiPep balance board (same that was run at Change the Game 2019) and a little more than 50 persons enjoyed trying it.
