Senior Coordinator

As Innovation Adviser at LiU I support students, researchers and employees to commercialize and utilise their ideas, knowledge and scientific results.


To increase the utilisation of LiU’s knowledge assets is a high-priority choice, and it is my task to support researchers, other employees and students in their efforts to achieve this.

My main responsibilities are:

  • Support research groups to plan for utilisation/impact and to implement this
  • Provide individual advice to researchers, other employees and students concerning utilisation and innovation
  • Identify ideas with commercial potential and present them to the business incubator LEAD
  • Act within ECIU University and SMART-ER, for example with innovation hubs
  • Be a member of the process management of Visual Sweden

Transform your idea into reality
