Linnaeus Eco-Tech 2018

11th International Conference on the Establishment of Cooperation among Companies and Institutions in the Nordic Countries, the Baltic Sea Region and the World - in Kalmar, Sweden, November 19-21 2018.

Researchers, scientists and students, professionals from business sector, municipalities and social enterprises, entrepreneurs and authorities from all countries are welcome!


Linnaeus Eco-Tech has been an academic tradition since 1997. The conference is organized by Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, every second year. One of the main goals of the conference is to promote research and education cooperation among the countries around the Baltic Sea towards sustainability. It has been more and more obvious that the environmental issues have risen from local through regional to global


The conference aims to promote knowledge and research within the areas of environmental science and environmental engineering. These aims are accomplished by plenary sessions, keynote speakers, workshops and oral presentation of scientific papers. The social environment created by the conference makes participants from different countries and fields to learn from each other.

Linnaeus Eco-Tech is based on cooperation between university, industry and policy makers, with the goal of improving relations between these sectors. The objective of such cooperation is to develop environmental technologies and sustainability in the Baltic Sea Region and the World.

Linnaeus University is already active in IWAMA project, and this time has joined the Baltic Sea Challenge network that has similar aims and over 250 committed cities, NGOs, universities, companies and other organisations implementing their own action plans and seeking for co-operation with other organisations.
