Lund University appoints project group
On the 15th of February, Lund University’s Board formally assigned a project group the task of developing the plans for LU’s establishment in Science Village. The group, under the leadership of professor Olle Söderman, will develop scenarios 2 and 3 in more concrete and in-depth detail. The scenarios are described in the report “Lund University’s establishment in Science Village” here (in Swedish).
The plans that are set out in the earlier report provide Lund University with good opportunities to form a close association with two world-leading research facilities within the materials field, with potentially significant effects for both its own research and the university’s international profile. Furthermore, the establishment of activities in Science Village provides an opportunity to create a modern campus environment in close proximity, not only to the facilities, but also to innovation-driven industry and the area’s international research community.
“The work is progressing at a good rate with regard to the establishment of activities in Science Village Scandinavia, SVS.” Torbjörn von Schantz, from The Vice-Chancellor’s Blog (in Swedish)
Science Village is pleased to know that the work is progressing well, with widespread support from both the Vice-Chancellor and the Board. The presence of Lund University is of major importance to the Village and the area’s profile as an environment for knowledge and innovation.
