science village part of skåne innovation week

Publicerad: 31 May, 2016 av Ulrika Lindmark |

Skåne Innovation Week is a week of activities, innovations and ideas in the creation of the world’s most innovative region and how we are all a part of it. 2016 events will take place between 30th May and 3rd June. Science Village Scandinavia AB with other partners is involved in the innovation week and will open Möllegården to the public on Wednesday, June 1st from 5pm until 7pm.

Möllegården is the newly renovated farm at Science Village between ESS and MAX IV. The farm building now houses an exhibition. Here you can learn how MAX IV and ESS work, and how they can be useful. You can also learn how Brunnshög and Science Village will be developed. There is also a description of Uppåkra and its connection to the people who lived at the Science Village area thousands of years ago.

Close to Möllegården we have – in cooperation with Kraftringen – placed a “Giraffe 2.0” a combined wind and solar power plants from Innoventum. At the Open House in Möllegården June 1st from 5pm to 7pm, representatives from Kraftringen and Innoventum will be on hand to inform about the “Giraffe”.

For sustainable travel we recommended visitors to take bus No. 20 from Lund C to Lund ESS, the farm and the giraffe are really close to the bus terminal. The bus runs every ten minutes, the last one leaving at 7.21pm back to Lund C. There is good accessibility by bicycle to the area. The number of car parking spaces is limited.

Lund University shows its interest in Science Village

Publicerad: 18 May, 2016 av Ulrika Lindmark |

Lund University has decided to evaluate those of its activities that may be candidates for relocation to Science Village. The reason for this explains Rector Torbjörn von Schantz is:

– The desire to create something really good in the area is strong and there are many ideas. Above all, we want to create synergy when, in the space of only a few years, both facilities, ESS and MAX IV will be in operation. They will not only be attractive to researchers, but most of the business and public sectors also. SVS has the responsibility to house support functions for the two large facilities, but it will also be an important place where academia and industry come together. We want to create opportunities for all faculties of the university to take part in the innovative environment.

In the forefront comes Medical and Science faculties together with LTH. They will submit in the spring a basis for the transfer of larger or smaller parts of these activities to Science Village.

Lund University is one of three owners of Science Village Scandinavia AB, and has long expressed an interest in the establishment of the Science Village. Now that the inauguration of MAX IV is fast approaching and ESS starts to rise from the ground, the university’s interest has materialised in its decision to develop a strategy.

We are very happy about this decision, and we hope that within a few years we will welcome staff and students to the new, fine buildings of the Science Village area!

France – Science Village

Publicerad: 18 May, 2016 av Ulrika Lindmark |

French Chamber of Commerce has published a major theme issue concerning the relationship between Sweden and France as a follow up of the Swedish King’s visit to France and the French Prime Minister’s state visit to Stockholm last autumn.

The magazine, Echanges Internationaux, is distributed via the French embassies around the world. Science Village is featured in one of the articles – The-place-to-be in Lund.

Science Village will participate in EU-funded development projects

Publicerad: 18 May, 2016 av Ulrika Lindmark |

Three project applications – in which Science Village is a co-proposer – have been granted EU funding. The three projects are all important to ensure that the developments around ESS and MAX IV will move forward.

1. ESS and MAX IV Cross Border Science and Society

This project is aimed at maximising the impact of the ESS and MAX IV research facilities. The main focus is on strengthening the skills of young researchers, but there are also sub-projects in lowering barriers, and promoting measures to ensure that researchers thrive and feel welcome, as well as how companies can become suppliers of products and services to the two large facilities.

The project is a collaboration between 27 players, including eight universities, in the Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak region. The total project budget is approximately 200 MSEK and runs for three years.


More information is available on the project website

2. Materials Business Centre

This project works towards creating a platform for interaction between established industries, small- and medium-sized enterprises, entrepreneurs, academia and other institutions. The ambition is that the contacts that are facilitated between the participants will lead to long-term collaborations, developments and business initiatives.

The project is a regional cooperation between Region Skåne, Lund University, Skåne Innovation, Invest in Skåne and Science Village Scandinavia AB. The total project budget is about 12 MSEK and it will also run for three years.

3. Development laboratories around the ESS and MAX IV

The project enables a short feasibility study to be carried out aimed at identifying which scientific infrastructures are needed around the ESS and MAX IV and how those needs could be financed.

The project is a collaboration between Lund University, Region Skåne, ESS, MAX IV and Science Village Scandinavia AB. The total project budget is 0.8 MSEK and it will run for nine months.
