Office of External Relations

The Office of External Relations works with development and strengthening of relations between the university and our surrounding society; regionally, nationally and internationally. Get in touch with us!

Team Cooperation with society (SAM)

We offer organisations, the public sector and industry an easy way to get in contact with Linnaeus University, while also providing internal support on questions relating to collaboration. We develop contacts and networks for various forms of collaboration between industry/society and the university's students and researchers. Through increased collaboration, we strengthen each other's respective activities by jointly contributing to knowledge, innovation, and an entrepreneurial approach for sustainable growth in the Linnaeus region.

We coordinate, administer, and assure the quality of university-wide international collaboration agreements and funding programmes related to education and research. We have a counselling role for the senior management, faculties, and the central administration concerning questions relating to internationalisation, and work to implement the university's internationalisation policy.

Team Grants and Innovation Office (GIO)

We inform about and provide advice on what forms of external funding is available for different types of research or innovation projects. We also support the preparation of applications for external funding, especially for complex projects, with the aim to improve the quality of the applications and to make the process easier for researchers. We also work to support researchers in identifying and strengthening societal impact aspects of their research. We are running the university holding company.  With Project Managers and Financial Advisors specialised on EU's framework programme Horizon 2020 we also support the execution of such projects.

LNU Innovation

LNU Innovation offers professional support in the early development of an idea, helps researchers, other employees and students realise and disseminate their ideas and research results, regardless of whether this is done commercially or non-commercially. We work continuously with new ideas from researchers and driven students within different disciplines. The ideas are often closely linked to research, the major societal challenges and the global sustainability goals.
