SLU's Innovation Award is now open!

Published: 09 May 2023

Are you a student, researcher, or employee at SLU Umeå and have an idea with the potential to change the green industry? Welcome to apply for the Innovation Award!

The green industry is facing one of its biggest challenges ever. Major changes and development are required, not least in forestry and agriculture. Entrepreneurial driving forces among researchers and students are necessary for the change that the industry and the earth are facing. We believe that many of the solutions needed can be found at SLU in Umeå.

The award aims to contribute to an innovation-promoting culture, that enables more of the university's collective knowledge to be transformed into innovations that can make a difference in society.

Do you have an idea for a new product, service, or method that can contribute to sustainable development? Apply for SLU Umeå and Sparbanksstiftelsen Norrland's award for sustainable innovations and win up to SEK 50,000!

The competition is open between May 2nd and September 6th 2023.
