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!

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.

Positive decision on light rail

Publicerad: 25 December, 2015 av Ulrika Lindmark |

December 17, 2015 is a historic date in the development of Science Village. Two positive decisions concerning the tramway were made on the same day. First of all news of the financing of the tramway from the state urban environment authority and later in the day the decision was made to construct the tram route from Lund C to ESS by Lund City Council.

The tramway is a priority project and an attractive public transport mode. In addition it is a step in the right direction towards creating a sustainable Science Village. It is very important that trams are established early on in the expansion of the district since it enhances the probability that the tram becomes the preferred method of travel to Brunnshög.

Currently the terminus station is planned to be located in the heart of Science Village. In its immediate vicinity the guest researcher accommodation, the restaurant and educational facilities are planned including the Visitor Centre. The decision on the tramline will make the researchers’ and the employees’ journeys much smoother.

Visitor Centre will be self-sufficient in electricity

Publicerad: 17 December, 2015 av Ulrika Lindmark |

As an initial first step to reach the goal of “Brunnshög becoming a European model for sustainable urban planning” Science Village Scandinavia and Kraftringen are collaborating in an energy project that will result in the Visitor Centre for the ESS and MAX IV being self-sufficient in electricity.

To accomplish this a hybrid power plant will be located close to the newly renovated visitor centre. The power plant, a Giraffe 2.0, will provide the building with electricity via both solar cells and wind power. The Giraffe will be supplied by the Swedish innovation company InnoVentum.

The Giraffe is expected to generate electricity surplus to our needs, which can then be sold to the grid. Such a hybrid power plant does not need more than a 25 m2 footprint which makes it easy to place on the SVS site. The Giraffe is built with a framework of wood, derived from sustainably-managed forests, and recycled steel.

Kraftringen is Science Village Scandinavia’s energy partner. The partnership covers a collaboration aimed at finding innovative energy and mobility solutions to meet Brunnshög’s vision. The hybrid power plant is the first visible example of our cooperation.

The renovation of the Visitor Centre was completed at the end of 2015. It is located in the former Miller’s House, close to the 17th century wooden windmill which is now to be renovated. An exhibition of ESS and MAX IV is soon to be installed in the building. The exhibition area will be avialiable to be booked for interested Groups.

Chinese interest in the Science Village

Publicerad: 2 December, 2015 av Ulrika Lindmark |

In May 2015 we were pleased to welcome a Chinese delegation to Lund. During their visit, a Letter of Intent was signed between Lund Municipality, Shenzhen DXHR Science and Technology, and Cleantech Scandinavia with the goal of working towards the establishment of an International Cleantech Centre in Lund.

In November, the Chinese visit was reciprocated by a delegation from Lund Municipality, headed by Anders Almgren, the Mayor, who made a return visit to Shanghai.


Hope for a future Chinese Cleantech Center in Science Village

The Chinese group expressed the intention of establishing itself in Science Village, and work has begun to flesh out the content, timelines and funding of this plan. It is hoped that the initiative will result in the construction of a Chinese Cleantech Centre at Science Village in the near future.

Thank you!
