Over SundetAn IoT and cultural cooperation across national bordersSpring 2021 (current)

 

The City of Helsingborg and the Municipality of Elsinore have initiated a new transdisciplinary IoT project – Over Sundet.

We have held an open call in the spring 2021 looking for projects that show new ways of working with technology and culture together with cities. The final resulst will be shown in both Elsinore and Helsingborg in 2022.

 

Background

Helsingør and Helsingborg are two cities that both want to develop the creative sector. Both cities experience that entrepreneurs in the cultural sector have difficulty developing new innovative ideas that have the potential to grow and are visible on an international stage. The best ideas are usually only realized at the local level – in this case either in Elsinore or in Helsingborg. The two cities want to establish a partnership to improve the opportunities for artistic innovation and entrepreneurship in the cultural sector – across the strait.

The two cities want to provide entrepreneurs in the cultural sector with increased exposure and the experience on how to scale up an idea and a larger network in Denmark and Sweden. The project will create a common community in Helsingør / Helsingborg for entrepreneurs in the cultural sector and create a sense of belonging through shared ownership of the ideas and experiences created for the public. We also want to create a cultural and technical experience for residents and the tourism industry when they are shown in Helsingør and Helsingborg during the project period. The purpose is to test new ways of working with technology and culture in cities in both Denmark and Sweden from an entrepreneurial perspective. Create new opportunities for entrepreneurs but also creative methods for cities to work with interdisciplinary projects. The aim is also to test new methods for interdisciplinary development within municipalities in both Denmark and Sweden.
