The Product Development Academy ( was founded in 2016 in collaboration between eight universities. With the aim to build capability for the future of product development in Sweden through strong academic-­industry networks, we continue the work initiated more than 20 years ago, which resulted in research programs such as ENDREA and ProViking, financed by Swedish research agencies including SSF and Vinnova. Lund University is part of the expansive Öresund region, with exciting science and industry projects including the world-­class MAX IV and ESS facilities. Join us in a workshop on November 30 to continue our work to shape the future of product development research through collaboration and outreach!
