Digital Nomads Center – a Win Win project

The Freja Forum Foundation works for cooperation that favors the democratic development in the Western Balkans as as in Sweden.

One of our projects is called Digital Nomads.

In Sweden there is a lack of IT-skilled professionals and residental housing. Two resources there are plenty of in the university city of Tuzla, Bosnia.

One of Bosnia’s biggest challenges is to maintain its well-educated citizens, Of the country’s five million inhabitants two million live abroad.

Freja Foundation is conducting an initiative together with the Civil Organisation Censor in order to create better conditions for newly graduated students. Through our sponsorship, Swedish companies have access to academic skills in IT, and statistics at a lower cost. And a Bosnian is given to build both the skills and the CV.

Huge interest for Digital Nomads

During Almedalen 2018, Freja Foundation was present meeting a number of business representatives about the project Digital Nomads.

Many Skype interviews between Swedish companies and skilled young academics in Tuzla took place – and it is wonderful to see how skype and wifi enables interesting meetings.

The University in Tuzla has focused on education within AI, Robotics, and Smart Material. Competences that Swedish companies are in need of already, and with a rising demand.
