Hi, let me introduce you to LU Innovation System.
So, let's start to look our name. Let's start with the first two letters... LU.. Lund University.
So were are we, we're in Europe, were in Scandinavia. We're in southern Scandinavia, we're inbetween Sweden and Denmark, we're in Lund.
Lund holds the biggest university in Scandinavia, it's around 350 years old.Today there are around 50 000 students, 6000 employees.
Over the years this has had a great impact...things like the artificial kidney that was researched
in the 1940's.
The ultrasound for medical use in the 50's, and one of the more recent example is bluetooth, that was being researched here in Lund together with Ericsson in the 90's.
So let's look at the second part of our name, Innovation System. What is an innovation? Innovation...invention. That's not the same thing.
An invention.. that's the result you have in your test-tube......an innovation that's when that result is brought
into the marketplace making a difference in peoples lives.
So what do we do at LU Innovation system? We help and guide the researchers and students at Lund University
making that journey from the test-tube into society with their research results.
So in short, that's LU Innovation system.
