Sustainable energy and new ways of finding and curing diseases – nanoscience places Sweden at the forefront

With nanoscience, we possess the keys to many solutions for the planet as well as for the human race.

The need for high technology for, among other things, precision medicine and sustainable, renewable energy is growing. To achieve a healthier and more sustainable society, we need to strengthen research resources and infrastructure. But how do we do this in the best way, to achieve maximum synergy effects and attract the best researchers?

Nanotechnology can place Sweden at the forefront of sustainable energy and new ways of finding and curing diseases. Welcome to see a short movie with NanoLund’s deputy director Maria Messing and Johan Wester, followed by a talk with Kerstin Jakobsson, former CEO of Medicon Village, Anders Mikkelsen, director of NanoLund, Camilla Modéer, member and senior adviser, Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) and Viktor Öwall, pro-vice-chancellor for infrastructure and digitalization, Lund University.

We talk about how nanotechnology can contribute to a sustainable future, the importance of research infrastructure, and the opportunities offered by the environment around Science Village and the new Nanolab Science Village. 

The talk is held in Swedish but will be texted in English later on. It is part of Lund University’s contribution to “Almedalsveckan”, an annual democratic place for dialogue, exchange, and unexpected meetings.

The event is held in Swedish but will be texted in English later on. Abstract is found in the end.

Abstract for our nanotechnology event:

The need for high technology for, among other things, precision medicine and sustainable, renewable energy is growing. To achieve a healthier and more sustainable society, we need to strengthen research resources and infrastructure. But how do we do this in the best way, to achieve maximum synergy effects and attract the best researchers? 

At Lund University, investments in basic research in nanoscience have already led to a number of innovations that benefit humans, the climate, and the environment. The joint future initiatives for cutting-edge research are now taking physical form northeast of Lund. Here, the government-funded research area NanoLund at Lund University is building a high-tech, modern laboratory in the middle of Science Village. The international, innovative research and business environment that is emerging here, around the new, exclusive research facilities ESS and MAX IV, is a decisive factor for technological development. Together with the new laboratory and proximity to industry, this gives our researchers unrivaled opportunities to provide humanity with new knowledge and new products for a sustainable civilization. Welcome to a conversation about how research can contribute to solving major societal problems and future challenges – and why it is so important that we address these issues.

Science Village Scandinavia AB arranges two Almedalen seminars about Science Village:How to build the most attractive research environment, and How does one enable meeting places between research and industry through the construction of the physical environment. (Both events in Swedish.)
