A year has passed since we opened the doors to Lund University’s Science Village office at IKDC. Much has happened since then:
- Several workshops were arranged in late 2021 with the Dean of the Faculty of Science, the Deputy Dean of LTH and representatives from research, education, support functions and from student unions.
- Four proposed scope scenarios were developed by the Faculty Coordinators, and were later revised during the dialogues to two new proposed scope scenarios: scenarios 5 and 6.
- A large number of dialogues and discussions with representatives from different parts of the organisation (staff and students) in early spring – about 1000 people.
- Two scope proposals, scenarios 5 and 6, were sent for consultation between 17 February and 12 April, to a total of 86 addressees including all faculties.
- The responses from the consultation round were compiled and summarised.
- Risks were identified during the dialogues and complemented by the consultation responses. An analysis group with representatives from education, research, support activities and students from both faculties was appointed to develop and describe the identified risks. The faculty managements at LTH and the Faculty of Science have further developed the risks, and added risk assessments and action descriptions with responsible parties.
Approval of the scope proposal is expected in September/October by both Faculty Boards and then it will be submitted to the Vice-Chancellor. We look forward to the Vice-Chancellor giving us green light for the next step so that we can move forward with the activity descriptions and planning of the premises this autumn.
We have a lot of important work ahead of us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your good cooperation over the past year, and we are very pleased with the great interest in Lund University’s establishment in Science Village. We look forward to meeting you all again in August! If you need to get in touch with us this summer, please email us at email@example.com.
For the curious, there is a lot going on in Science Village and Brunnshög. This spring, The Loop and Space both had sod turning ceremonies. And check out the Nobel Park, the Knowledge Park and Hage. They are certainly worth a visit!
The Science Village office wishes you a happy summer!
