“Infomaker is collaborating with Linnaeus University in many ways ranging from sharing our knowledge with students to lifelong learning for Infomaker colleagues,” said Peter Månsson, Infomaker CTO. “Last year many of our developers joined a university course in AI and Machine Learning, and we are now giving advice on new courses that hopefully can increase our innovative capacity. We have many common goals, which makes the Linnaeus University a great partner. Our collaboration gives a lot back to us.”

According to the award jury, Infomaker Scandinavia AB contributes to the development of the industry by being a driving force in the development and implementation of training programs for professionals, and by inspiring more young women to study IT or work with IT.
