Creating a sustainable future

As we aim to be a sustainable Science Park working towards Agenda2030 and the 17 developments
goals, we are involved in the following projects.

Get business-ready for Agenda 2030 – UN SDG and UN Global Compact Training

Ideon Science Park, including Ideon Innovation and Ideon Open, have directed our strategy towards SDG 8, supported by 5, 9 and 17. Learn why in this training.

As a further commitment towards becoming the leading science park in the world to tackle the major challenges we face today, Ideon Science Park has also become the first science park in the world to become a member of the UNGC, the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative.

You’ll learn:

  • Why incorporating the SDG’s and becoming a member of the UNGC is GOOD for your business
  • How to build these initiatives into your company’s DNA and not just as a “nice to have” activity
  • Properly communicating these initiatives internally and externally for maximum effectiveness
  • And, much, much more.

About the Going Global project – Market entry support for companies

Activities in the project Going Global will help you and your company to get contacts to new markets, establishments, and partners outside Sweden’ s borders.

The project is run by Ideon Science Park and Ideon Innovation in a collaboration.

The purpose: To get you and your company ready for global expansion and make it easier for you s to find your way in the internationalization process.


This webinar is for:

Startups – who early on will see what opportunities you have in different markets and what contacts you can make.

Scaleups – that is now at the threshold and ready to establish itself and sell in international markets.

Larger companies – that already exist in a market but need contacts with new markets.

How: During autumn-20 and spring-21 we will hold a series of live-streamed webinars where we invite players from other markets where we have an elaborate network of contacts such as Denmark, Germany, England, USA, China, and Hong Kong, as well as players in Sweden that help companies to establish themselves internationally. The purpose of webinars is for participants to bring clear tools/contacts to be able to take the next step in their internationalization process. At each webinar, participants should be able to interact and ask questions to the presenters.

Each webinar will contain:

  • Trend analysis
  • Direct contacts that can help you and your company to the global market (Business Sweden, Chambers of Commerce, Innovations Houses, Science Parks, etc)
  • Testimonials from companies that made the trip
  • Expertise in corporate law/tax/financing

Matching newly arrived academics with Ideon companies

The need for trained programmers in the south of Sweden in general is high and no less in the park. Through an ESF project we have offered newly arrived academics a fast track to jobs within programming, including tests, university training, internship and first-job-support.

Ideon Science Park´s role has been to find internships opportunities and work with the companies to meet their needs as well as possible.

The project MatchIT is financed by ESF, EU, and is a cooperation with Lund University, Arbetsförmedlingen (Employment Agency), Region Skåne, Blekinge School of Technology and Region Blekinge.

Ideon Coder Kids

& Ideon Hackathon


Ideon Science Park has since 2017 been hosting the annual Ideon coder Kids, one day during the autumn break. A full day with programming activities for beginners and experts.

“Wow what a day! I have learned how to make a bunch of games and designed backgrounds. The best thing was that I met others who liked programming too”

– From Ideon Coder Kids survey 2019

Ideon Coder Kids, for children the ages 8-12, welcomes beginners as well as those with experience within programming. The participants get to learn more about programming, game development, web and problem solving. Starting 2020, the activity is expanded and we invite teens in the ages 13-15 to Ideon Hackathon. Both these activities have a total of 160 spots.

The purpose of Ideon Coder Kids and Ideon Hackathon is to open the interest of programming and digital creating for children and teens, and give them the push to keep evolving.

2020 news and updates:

–        Ideon Coder Kids expands to 3 half days and goes digital

–        Ideon Hackathon for teens ages 13-15

–        Ideon Coder Kids in cooperation with kindergartens in Lunds City and Staffanstorps City for the ages 8-12


Ideon Coder Kids and Ideon Hackathon are hosted in close collaboration with Axis Communications, Arm, Volvo Cars, Bosch, Sony, Qlik, Microsoft, KodCentrum, CoolMinds, Hemkodat and Coder Dojo.


And every other week the most interested kids are welcome to CoderDojo, where volunteers guide kids in how to program in applications such as Scratch and Python.

The Yes Way

Diversity is key to groundbreaking innovations! To ensure that entrepreneurs with diverse
backgrounds and gender feel welcome into the innovation support system, Ideon Innovation have started a groundbreaking project where they broaden the term “entrepreneur” and investigate what it takes and what the system, the incubators and the science park need to do to become more diverse and welcoming. The project is financed by Vinnova.

testbeds – try out your ideas at Ideon!

At Ideon, we think it is important that you test your ideas as early as possible. Before the consumer tests, you need to test out the functionality and there are opportunities for you to do that at Ideon. It may be sensors,  a plant wall or something else.
