Universities and Large Research Facilities
Nowadays you often find science parks, science villages or large research facilities located close to universities, especially to technical universities. The reason is obvious - the synergy effects you can achieve. At the same time it can be a problem to establish a good collaboration that will be a real win-win-situation. Sometimes even competition can arise.
In Lund right now, three large research facilities are being planned and established in close connection to the university: the European Spallation Source (ESS), MAX IV and Medicon Village. The total investment is in the range of 2 billion Euros. Furthermore, for almost 30 years we have had IDEON Science Village close to the aculty of engineering, LTH, with 260 companies and almost 300 employees.
Most welcome to Lund!
