Description

The aim of the project is to create a National Software Corridor based on competences wrt. research, innovation, education and business in the western part of Denmark.

Initially, the corridor will consist of project sites in Århus, Aalborg and Sønderborg. In addition to this, sites will be established in selected cities that host relevant educations. However, the funding of the extensions is not part of the project.

The Software Conrridor will include further development of accredited lifelong learning initiatives for the business community and also stimulate knowledge transfer with companies through dissemination activities. Furthermore, innovation activities will be initiated through a number of development projects using distributed collaboration facilities.

The Software Corridor has a total budget of DKK 8 million and it is funded by a grant of DKK 6 million kr.from The European Regional Development Fund through the Danish Regions. The project was inaugurated September 2008 and is expected to run for 3 years. The project partners are Center for Embedded Software Systems (CISS) at Aalborg University, The Alexandra Institute and Center for Software Innovation.
