ProcessIT Innovations was awarded the title of Vinnväxtvinnare by VINNOVA, thereby being guaranteed financial support over a period of ten years.

VINNVÄXT is a programme that takes the form of a competition for regions. The aim is to promote sustainable growth by developing internationally competitive research and innovation environments in specific growth fields.

ProcessIT Innovations Annual Report



2009-02-13 Two new ProcessIT projects receive funding of 14.5 MSEK
INTERREG IVA Nord approved two new ProcessIT projects on the 28th of January 2009. The projects (VSP – Vision Systems research Platform and Innovative e-Maintenance services for primary Industries and SMEs) are the result of many years of work between ProcessIT Innovations, Digipolis in Kemi, and their partners and total 14.5 MSEK with 7.3 MSEK earmarked for Luleå University of Technology (LTU).
2008-11-11 EU finance for project to measure particles in oil
The aim of the project is to develop an on-line sensor to facilitate the measurement of the size, shape, and composition of particles in oil. The project is financed via the EU programme INTEREG IVA to a total of SEK 8 million, of which SEK 5 million is based in Sweden.
2008-11-11 Grant of SEK 21 million to project for innovation-driven growth
Project TUUDI (Growth Through University-Driven Innovation) will be able to implement and improve commercialisation opportunities in the region with a larger number of preliminary studies, requirement inventories, and R&D projects.
2008-10-17 Brännströms objective is to make campanies grow
New Chairman Thomas Brännström sees a great future for Process IT Innovations. The objective is, within ten years, to move from being regarded as a subsidised region on the outskirts of the EU to become one of the EU’s successful regions.
2008-08-18 Lorentz Andersson awarded an honorary doctorate
Lorentz Andersson, Chairman of ProcessIT Innovations and former County Governor of Västerbotten, has been awarded an honorary doctorate by Luleå University of Technology.
2008-06-16 Professor Kalle Lyytinen awarded honorary doctorate by Umeå university
Process IT Innovation international assessor Professor Kalle Lyytinen has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the Faculty of Social Sciences of Umeå University. Lyytinen is a leading international informatics researcher focusing on the organisational and public consequences of Information Technology. Among other things, he has investigated how the use of IT in the architectural sector leads to innovative design solutions.
2008-04-16 Strategies for better ICT products
For ProcessIT to become better and stronger, it is now actively working on projects including scientific and technical gender research, a preliminary study concerning extension of ProcessIT to Örnsköldsvik, and an development lab in Skellefteå.
2008-04-16 International system suppliers and ICT industry growth
Condition monitoring, wireless measurement systems, and visualisation are at a premium when it comes to getting the ICT industry to grow. Model-based regulation and optimisation, which can be applied for example to reduction of NaOH consumption in the paper and pulp industry, are also important.
2008-04-16 Process industry applications. Results and expectations
Systems for accurate and stable contactless measurement are desirable in the process industry. Here the key phrase is measurement in extreme environments. In this area, techniques such as image analysis, flow measurement, and process control are being developed.
2008-04-16 Manufacturing industry possibilities with the ICT sector
A new area with many possibilities, such as creating a user-friendly interface for machine drivers, monitoring the condition of vehicle crews, and optimising, eg, logistics by using mathematical models.
