Open Lab Skåne has received funding for three more years. The project provides small and medium-sized businesses with access to well-equipped laboratories with advanced equipment and specialized expertise. The purpose of the project is to promote development of new products and services.
Open Lab Skåne will now be able to continue to promote development projects by opening up laboratories and providing equipment and expertise in the fields of life science, materials science, food and chemistry.
The project, which is a collaboration involving Malmö University, Lund University and SmiLe Incubator, is financed by the European Regional Development Fund and Region Skåne. The project is also supported by Medeon Science Park & Incubator and Medicon Village.
“We look forward to welcoming many new companies over the next three years,” says Magdalena Almén, project manager of Open Lab Skåne, beginning in 2020.
“We are pleased that we will be able to continue to offer small[s1] businesses this opportunity. These companies can greatly benefit from access to these instruments, other equipment and expert help, which can otherwise be difficult to obtain,” says Per Brunmark, project coordinator at SmiLe Incubator.
