Borderless Game Academy - Interreg Aurora

Interreg Aurora Regional Council of Lappland

Period: 21.9.2023 - 31.8.2025

Content: The overall objective of the project is to address the shortage of skilled
professionals in the gaming industry in the Interreg Aurora programme area
through the development of a unique cross-border higher education product. The
project aims to combine the core expertise of Swedish game development with
Finnish entrepreneurial skills in the creative industries and Finnish higher
education curricula. By developing methods for cross-border educational
cooperation the aim is to create a new, unique cross-border educational product
that both attracts students to the programme area and reduces the risk of brain
drain of creative talents from it.
