SPOK (Contemporary production and consumption) aims to gather and spread knowledge about local manufacturing opportunities, from handicraft to industry. In 2020, the platform expanded after the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth granted SPOK funds to strengthen the conditions for industrialization and manufacturing in Sweden. The aim of the initiative was to spread the platform nationally with the help of a network of self-propelled, regional hubs that administer the listing of companies locally. SPOK was founded by designer Jenny Nordberg and is run by Form/Design Center.
