Pitching prototypes and planning in Umeå

A unique meeting between academia and industry took place in Umeå. Both of Infra-Botnias project leaders participated. Groups of student pitched prototypes of digital tools for the construction industry. They presented their ideas for Per Linghult, CEO on a building company called VNB. Infra-Botnia gained a lot of knowledge during the event that we will use later on when we organize the events of the project and when we communicate with the infrastructure and building companies. Here is a link to a news article on the students’ presentations on Umeå University’s homepages (only in Swedish):

During the same get-together in Umeå the project leader planned the project for long-term.
