The project will procure and technically build a design and art infrastructure complementing the Arcta infrastructure and operating model of the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of Lapland, expanding it with
1) new technology
2) virtual technology
3) cinema, and
4) regional mobility.
The Faculty of Arts of the University of Lapland offers a unique operating environment that is not offered outside the Helsinki Metropolitan Area at the university level. This is a major competitive advantage in Lapland’s smart specialization strategy, and it is natural to grow an innovation cluster around it as it provides opportunities for growth.
