Meeting Place Karlshamn
Karlshamn was appointed as a hub for computer games by The Knowledge Foundation in 2003 and had as its mission to stimulate the growth of the Swedish computer game industry. The meeting place filled an important role in their daily work as an actor working in courses, research, cultural manifestations and results taken at international, national, regional and local levels.
Meeting Place Karlshamn has been actively involved in showing off and position the Nordic and Swedish computer games industry in the international arena. The meeting place was also the convener and driving force behind the network FOSFOR that gathers academics who research in computer games. The Meeting Place was working to strengthen and develop regional groupings within the new media.
