Microsoft 365 Copilot will be made available for co-workers in January 2024.

In January, co-workers at LiU will be among the first universities in Sweden to have access to use Microsoft 365 Copilot.

“It’s exciting that LiU is one of the first universities in Sweden that get the opportunity to activate Microsoft 365 Copilot as it clearly links to LiU’s strategic goal of being a leader in digitisation. With the help of Copilot, LiU’s employees get another powerful tool that creates opportunities to facilitate research and teaching,” says Joakim Nejdeby, Digitalisation Director.

Microsoft 365 Copilot is Microsoft’s AI service that is integrated into Microsoft software and is there to facilitate work. With the help of various prompts/questions, it can help to perform work tasks or act as a sounding board.
