MaU Innovation’s contribution is to turn knowledge into societal benefit, to ensure that research results and ideas are given the best prerequisites to be used in society and contribute to a better future.

Our governmental mission

In 2018, Malmö University was given the opportunity to set up an Innovation Office. The Innovation Office is aimed at researchers, students, and other employees with the task of increasing the utilization of research-based knowledge. The government’s motivation for establishing Innovation Offices at Swedish universities is to make the utilization of research more efficient and thus contribute to creating benefits for society.

At Malmö University, MaU Innovation is responsible for carrying out the government’s Innovation Office mission.
