Creating the future – Skåne Innovation Week at Ideon

June 1 @ 09:00 - 18:30


Seminars, pitches, panel discussions about disruptive business models, presentations of innovations for a better world and a Robotic After Work. The whole day will end with the fantastic Innovation Barbeque, join us!

9.00-10.00 Disruptive Morning

What happens with traditional industries when new come along and challenge the usual way of doing business? We will hear from two actors that are changing industries with their innovative business models.

09.00 – 09.25 Daniel Persson, Min Doktor

Min Doktor was founded in 2013 by a doctor who saw the need for a new way of working and who saw that digitalization provided an opportunity to improve the situation for both patients and health professionals. Together with expertise in development and IT security, they have built up Min Doktor to become Sweden’s leading digital healthcare provider.

09.30 – 09.55 Jon Hauksson, Storytel

Storytel was founded in 2005 by Jonas Tellander and Jon Hauksson. This Ideon alumni has turned the publishing world upside down with their ideas. Hear about their amazing journey from Bokilur to a big publishing house.


10.10-12.10  Who saves the planet? My contribution to the sustainable society

Moderated by Maria Sätherström, WIN Water. This will be a discussion on how innovations can contribute to a more sustainable society.

William Håkansson and Robert Schmitt, Vultus

Vultus use a combination of weather data, drones and satellite data, which is then analysed using machine learning. Nitrogen optimization is a step in their goal of creating efficient data-driven agriculture where plant protection is spread efficiently and damage is minimized.

Sara Sterner, Orbital Systems

Based on founder Mehrdad Mahdjoubi’s work with the NASA Mars missions, Orbital Systems technology lets people use all the water they want without wasting any of it. Their first application of the technology is in the OAS shower, because the legacy shower uses more water and energy inefficiently than any other non-industrial use.


13.00-15.45 Living and working with robots

13.00 – 13.20 Klas Nilsson, Cognibotics and Maj Stenmark, Faculty of Engineering, LTH

Klas Nilsson, a researcher in productive robotics and leader of the Robotics and Semantic Systems in Computer Science at LTH, has, together with five research colleagues, developed a new technology that leads to increased accuracy in industrial robots.

Maj Stenmark, a PhD at the Institution of Computer Science, is developing user-friendly programming methods and tools. The user can instruct the robot using kinaesthetic teaching (manually guiding the robot), natural language commands and high-level instructions about objects and actions.

13.30 – 13.50 Per Sikö, Jayway – An overview of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is mentioned just about everywhere but what is it and how can you benefit from it? This presentation will explain the fundamental concepts, talk about the state of AI today and end with a glimpse of the future and what to expect in terms of selfe driving cars, brain implants and super humans.

Track 1: 13.50 – 14.20 Mattias Fras, Nordea, Group Head of Robotics Strategy & Innovations

Track 2: 13.50 – 14.20
Martin Gunnarsson, Jayway – Machine Learning, a peek under the hood
Machine Learning is on everybody’s mind right now, but as powerful as it may be, it’s also surrounded by a lot of myths and misconceptions. In this presentation, we’ll take a closer look at what Machine Learning really is, the types of problems it can help us solve, and the different steps involved in a typical Machine Learning setup.


14.20 – 14.50 Coffee Break

15.00 – 15.45 Panel discussion moderated by Johan Wester on what a future will robots will look like
