New project leader

Starting October 1st, Gustav Söderlund will take over as the lead partner Project Director from Ingela Johansson, who will move on to a new job in the Luleå Municipality, Norrbotten. Gustav Söderlund works as the E-health Strategic Officer at the Norrbotten County Council, Sweden. He has a background in product design, developing consumer electronic products in Europe and Asia, and holds an MSc in Ergonomic Design Engineering from Luleå University of Technology.

Gustav Söderlund will be responsible for coordination and project management of RemoAges transnational activities and collaboration.

– Even though I have not had an active part in the planning and startup phase of the RemoAge project I have had the opportunity to follow the progress from the inside. Thanks to Ingela and all the other project partners from Norway, Scotland, Shetland Isles, Sweden and Western Isles the project is very well prepared.  I am very excited for this opportunity to be part of this transnational group of specialists that has joined forces to find smart ways of using technology that enable frail older people to live independent and vibrant lives for a longer time.

Gustav Söderberg believes that the situation all our respective regions face today, with aging demographics and limited resources, is not only a problem, but also a fantastic opportunity.

– In the RemoAge project we can take advantage of our collective knowledge and different cultural perspectives, and utilize our creativity, dare ourselves to test unorthodox ideas and in the end, find innovative ways of using technology to enable us to provide quality health care no matter if you live in urban or rural areas.
