LU Innovation’s funding assistance
LU Innovation has various ways in which it can help fund research-based commercialisation projects.
Many research projects are funded through grants or in some other way by an external party, such as another authority or a company. A contract is signed between the university and the external party as regards the terms of the funding (e.g. use of the funds, publication, rights to the results, liability, project organisation and management, etc.). Contact the Legal Division for e.g. legal advice, help with the evaluation of terms and the drafting of agreements, and support during negotiations.
With the help of donations, we can can fund more research, education and other activities. Do you have contact with potential donors, or would like to discuss the possibility of donations to your particular research?
The website provides information on ethical guidelines and laws affecting the research process. The information is based on Swedish law and on regulations at Lund University. As an employee of Lund University, you also have access to research ethics support. Address any questions or queries to firstname.lastname@example.org for advice and answers or to set up a meeting.
