LTU Business partner in Swedish Mining Innovation
LTU Business is becoming a partner in Swedish Mining Innovation, formerly SIP STRIM, the strategic innovation programme for Sweden’s mining and metal producing industry.
The partnership means that LTU Business will join the program management organisation together with Luleå University of Technology, which is the host organization.
Jenny Greberg, Program Director for Swedish Mining Innovation, welcomes the new partnership:
– LTU Business adds experience and cutting-edge expertise that further strengthens Swedish Mining Innovation’s program management. I’m looking forward to formalize the collaboration and this ensures our ability to successfully run the national program.
With the partnership, LTU Business sees the opportunity to expand its contribution to the development of a sustainable Swedish and international mining sector. The company has for many years worked with competence development and examined over 1000 mining engineers internationally. In recent years, they have worked with innovation management and market validation for clients such as LKAB, Boliden, Atlas Copco, Siemens and the German mining giant DMT, as well as the acclaimed innovation project SIMS.
– LTU Business has worked with the mining industry for almost 40 years, both nationally and internationally in education and innovation, so it is both fun and inspiring to be part of a program so important to Sweden, concludes Gry Holmgren Hajskjold, CEO of LTU Business.
Swedish Mining Innovation is an initiative to create conditions for international competitiveness and sustainable solutions to global challenges, and is part of Vinnova’s, the Swedish Energy Agency’s and Formas’ investment in strategic innovation areas.
