LNU Innovation

LNU Innovation is Linnaeus University's support for innovation and utilization. We help researchers, other employees and students to put their ideas and results to use, regardless of which way you want to go, commercially or non-commercially. With us, you get professional support in the early development of your idea. We also provide support in the development of new projects and collaborations in the form of workshops and meeting facilitation.

Innovations are often created at the intersection of academia, business and society – we are convinced of that. With joint forces, we can make collaborations grow and ideas become reality.

We hope you want to join us. The door is open, welcome in!

Student

If you as a teacher come in contact with students who want to develop their ideas or even start a business, ask them to contact Drivhuset, which is located in Kalmar and Växjö. We at Lnu Innovation work closely with Drivhusen, which has a mission from Lnu to support students in developing their ideas.

Workshops and support for you and your research group

At the innovation office, we work with a number of different tools linked to the utilization of research and if necessary and desired, we can facilitate workshops with you and your research group free of charge based on e.g. the following tools. Please let me know if you are interested or have specific requests.

PhD course

Every year we arrange a popular doctoral course focusing on utilization and innovation – Innovative applications of research and science 4.5 credits. Known for its collaboration across university boundaries as well as for its interdisciplinary mix of participants.

Innovation office Fyrklövern

We are part of Linnaeus University, at the same time as we are also part of the Innovation Office Fyrklövern , which is a collaboration between four universities:  Karlstad University, Linnaeus University, Mid Sweden University and Örebro University. Within the Innovation Office Fyrklövern, a team of almost 20 people works for those who work at Fyrklövern's higher education institutions. We have a special mission - knowledge for the benefit. An assignment we take on by offering a wide range of skills and services, as the way to get there can look different depending on your particular idea, your interest and your needs.

Part of an innovation system

Linnaeus University is not alone in the innovation system. We work closely with other actors and together we offer support from early idea to an established company or to other desired result.  It is your journey we are with.

A network that benefits you
LNU Innovation collaborates closely with incubators and Science Parks in both Kalmar and Växjö , but also with other actors such as Drivhus and ALMI and others. We are in close contact and it is easy to arrive at – together we become strong to strengthen entrepreneurs and innovators.
