The establishment of the East Node started mid- September on the base of the pilot study made during the spring of 2020. Niclas Fock, has been appointed Node Manager and manages the project along with Karin Ackerholm, Senior Project Manager.

First of all we welcomed four new partners to AI Sweden, Region Östergötland, Linköping University, Linköping Municipality and The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI).


Though the focus has laid on engaging and managing partners the East Node has participated and arranged several events such as the AI- seminar ”AI in reality” during the Sweden Innovation Days. Did you miss it? Don´t worry, you can still watch all the speakers right here!
