One of the most important strengths of the Ideon area are the many open laboratory facilities.
Ideon Science Park is placed right between Lund University and several World Class laboratories within nano technology, nano medicine. electronics, 3D printing, virtual reality, radio transmission, biomedicine, chemistry, mobile technology and sensor technology.
Prototype, develop and test your innovations at one of the World Class Labs in this area. The open labs in the area include:
MAX IV Laboratory
MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists with the most brilliant X-rays for research. These X-rays will be used to understand, explain and improve the world around us. They will enable the study of materials that we use today and improve them beyond the performance that we know. In addition, MAX IV will allow scientists to develop new materials and products that we cannot even imagine today, such as medications with better and more precise functions and fewer side-effects, nanoparticles for diverse areas of application, including paints, catalysis or computing, or lighter and stronger packaging materials for the future.
European Spallation Source (ESS)
ESS will be opening in 2023
ESS will be part of the future suite of European research infrastructures providing experimental possibilities to research from both academia and industry. Research with neutrons gives us knowledge that improves our everyday lives, our health and our environment.
Sigma Connectivity Labs - Sensor & Mobile technology
We run one of the world’s few truly independent labs, comparable only to something you can dream of building and running in-house yourself. Now you have all the necessary brains and tools to discover, design, prototype and test your product idea into reality. Find out more about the Sigma Connectivity Labs.
Laboratories at Medicon Village
There are 17,000 m2 of laboratories at Medicon Village – from the simple to the advanced. They are suitable for a whole range of activities and meet all current standards including those covering ventilation, gases and other media. They include labs for chemistry and biochemistry, climate rooms, cell biology labs, clean rooms and pharmaceutical labs. There are also labs for pre-clinical testing, analysis and much more. We can also adapt a lab to your special needs. Find out more about the labs at Medicon Village
Laboratories at Lund University
Robotics Cognition Science lab Lund University
LUCS Robotic Group investigates various cognitive abilities using computational models and robots. By building robots that mimics the cognitive processes in humans or animals, we learn about the problems that the biological cognitive systems have to solve while simultaneously testing if the models work in practice.
The Virtual Reality lab
The Virtual Reality lab is an interdisciplinary meeting point for visualization and new interaction technologies. We have partnerships in the academic world, in terms of research projects and courses, and in the private and public sectors.
3D printing laboratory
The 3D print laboratory is a modern research facility for product development and manufacturing methodology, and a place where you can easily turn your ideas into reality.
The lab is open to all Lund university staff and students. The access philosophy for the Lab is one of open access with a welcoming attitude that encourages staff, students and industry partners to extensively use the facility to its maximum potential and explore new areas of use for the technologies.
The department’s aerosol laboratory consists of three large halls and four smaller premises, with a total area of 400 m2. In the halls there are a wind tunnel (cross section 1 m2 and length 12 m), an experiment chamber (floor area 9 m2 and height 2.4 m), and a number of smaller experiment boxes. We have a large number of instruments for advanced measuring of airborne particles.
The usability lab can be employed in situations where one wants to observe the interplay between humans and products or between humans and humans under controlled conditions.
The laboratory for thermal environments brings together research and development work about the interplay between human beings and the climate around them. Its activities are directed towards studies of the effects of thermal factors on the health, performance, working ability and comfort of human beings.
Health Sciences Lab
The Health Sciences Lab is a metabolic and muscular laboratory with strong research links, which focuses on evaluating aspects of lifestyle and sport. We offer physiological testing, training advice and consulting.
The Humanities Lab
The Humanities Lab is an interdisciplinary research and training facility mainly for researchers, teachers, and students across the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology. We host technology, methodological know-how, archiving expertise, and a wide range of research projects. Lab activities are centered around the humanities with research targeting issues of communication, culture, cognition and learning, but many projects are interdisciplinary and conducted in collaboration with the social sciences, medicine, the natural sciences, engineering, and e-Science.
AAV Vector Lab
The Lund AAV vector core is located at the BMC ín Lund. It is a viral vector core facility providing you with full service - the core has a long experience in the production of viral-based vectors and has become an important technological resource for researchers, providing services to non-profit institutions and academic investigators world wide.
