For Companies and Cooperations

With the university's collective knowledge, LU Innovation help integrate research, innovation and entrepreneurship. Together we accelerate growth and create better conditions for health, environment and society.

For both private and public sectors and organisations a collaboration with Lund University means access to unique and up to date expertise in many areas. It may also involve contact with an important recruitment base for future skills needs. 

Collaboration in Research and Development

LU Innovation helps companies and other organisations that want to collaborate with Lund University in their own research and development. Through us you can get in touch with researchers for collaboration, ranging from theory to practical testing.

All forms of collaborative projects should be long term and operated with funds from both research funding at the University as well as from the participating companies. We can also provide contacts for pure contract research. In that case the company must fund the mission with its own funds. Contact our Business Developers if you want to know more.

Licenses and Business Contacts

LU Innovation also interacts with companies to commercially validate and develop concrete ideas and results from university research. In such projects LU Innovation enter into an agreement with the researcher that regulates the rights to the results, so they can be passed on to companies outside the university if interested. Any such transmission is done on a commercial basis and are negotiated on a case by case basis. Contact our Business Developers if you want to know more.
