Through a close cooperation with organizations such as VentureLab, LU Innovation, Ideon Innovation, LUIS and others you will get updated and essential information concerning the more practical issues related to your business and/or project development. The cooperation also concers development of joint business ideas where you get the opportunity to develop ideas based on research conducted at the university, business ideas with an origin from e.g. Region Skåne, or ideas developed during internships in established companies.
