The future science village between ESS and MAX IV Laboratory is named – Science Village Scandinavia – which will be the hub of the area where the largest research initiative grows.
The planned science village have previously gone under the working title Lundamark (ground of Lund in english). The new name Science Village Scandinavia is appealing, informative and furthermore internationally viable.
– I am very pleased that the area got its final name. Based on the new name Science Village Scandinavia, we can now really start promoting the area with a view to future investments, says BG Svensson, CEO of the Science Village Scandinavia AB.
– The goal is to build the world’s best research and innovation environment.
The name has been developed by the Science Village Scandinavia Board, together with an advisory group, where members of the ESS and MAX IV Laboratory participated.
– Identification of the Science Village Scandinavia stands with one leg in the research, and one leg in the village as a central hub and meeting place. The word “Scandinavia” symbolizes our ambition to attract research actors from many countries as well as building an international research village, says Bengt Holgersson, Chairman.
– It also symbolizes the Scandinavian collaborations around the ESS and MAX IV laboratory, and our Scandinavian perspective on sustainability.
