SLU Holdings - Network

Network

You are an expert in your field of research. SLU Holding's Innovation and business advisors are experts in developing and packaging research results so they meet a market demand. Together with our network we are creating the opportunity for your idea to be disseminated and used in society.

SLU Holding is active at both regional and national levels. We have built strong networks around SLU's operational sites – networks that we naturally open up to everyone we collaborate with, wherever they may be working.  SLU Holding is a co-owner of Uppsala Innovation Centre (UIC), which ranks as the world's fourth-best business incubator with links to a university. Together with UIC and other prominent innovation organisations, we make up Uppsala Innovations Hub. In Umeå SLU Holding is a partner in Uminova Innovation, in Skara we are collaborating closely with the food industry and in Alnarp we are working with the innovation cluster around Lund and green industries.

"UIC and SLU Holding have enjoyed successful collaboration that goes back many years. SLU Holding was a strong driver of the formation of UIC in 1999. SLU Holding is now the most important collaborating partner for business concepts arising at SLU.

We look forward to new ventures together as SLU Holding’s business incubator, in part together with Green Innovation Park.”

"SLU Holding brings expertise that is good for researchers and the industry.
For Agroväst’s part, we interact with academia, industry and society in developing agriculture, and it is often a matter of finding creative solutions.

Our latest joint projects led to a really successful solution for the researchers involved
– my assessment is that Holding's contribution was a key element of the excellent result.  
We look forward to the next project together."

"Drivhuset and SLU Holding work closely together in that Drivhuset is an initial point of contact for students at SLU with an interest in entrepreneurship and enterprise. Through us, the students can then seek the help of SLU

Holding, so they can progress with their innovative business concepts. We thus complement each other very well – Drivhuset, with its wide-ranging knowledge and expertise in the field of entrepreneurship and enterprise, and SLU Holding, with its cutting-edge knowledge of green industries."

"VentureLab at Lund University is working to ensure students have the courage to push their business concepts. The collaboration VentureLab@SLU, initiated by SLU Holding, gives us and Lund University’s students a direct access to SLU’s expertise in green industries, and vice versa!

The aim is for the students at the two seats of learning to meet and use their different skills to develop the products and services of the future!"
