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.

Matching newly arrived academics with Ideon companies

The need for trained programmers in the south of Sweden in general is high and in the park huge.
Through an European Social Fund (ESF) project we offer newly arrived academics a fast track to programmer jobs, including matching tests, university training, internship and first-job-support. Ideon Science Park´s role is to find internships opportunities and work with the companies to meet their needs as good as possible.

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

Energy cooperation southern Sweden

The world needs more energy innovations to counter the climate changes, and we need them

fast! We are scouting the south of Sweden for energy related innovations and connecting them with the Swedish Energy Agency. WIthin the network we are helping each other how to create more energy related innovations.

The project is financed by the Swedish Energy Agency and is a cooperation with Lund School of Technology and the incubators Minc and Agile. Ideon Open and Ideon Innovation are important members of the project team.

Ideon Coder Kids

In order to inspire more kids to become programmers, and to show them what life in a science park
could be like, we arrange the Ideon CoderKids once a year, where Ideon companies like
ARM, Axis Communications, Qlik, Sony and Volvo Cars teach kids why and how to program!

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.

Once a month we review applications from companies who want to test their solutions here at Ideon. Our three property owners Castellum, Vasakronan and Wihlborgs provide free space for the tests, while you as a company take responsibility for installation and dismantling. Once a test has been approved by the property owner, you will also sign an agreement on liability and insurance.
