Ocean Data Factory (ODF) Sweden is a two-year project initiative (2019-2021) that received its initial funding from Vinnova – Sweden’s Innovation Agency.
The funding is part of Vinnova’s focus on increasing Sweden’s development speed within artificial intelligence through the establishment of data labs. ODF Sweden is one of eight data labs selected in a funding round in the spring 2019.
ODF Sweden strives to increase the pace of sustainable innovation in the blue economy by enabling new uses of ocean data through the establishment of a data factory. A data factory is much like any other factory in the sense that there are inputs that are transformed through an internal process and that then result in outputs.
