Foundation funds new research school for data-driven systems

The Knowledge Foundation recently announced that Malmö University receives about SEK 11 million in funding for a new research school. Datadrivna system is a research partnership between Malmö University and the private sector. The new program’s aim is to increase participants’ research competence and competitiveness, and to strengthen academia and private sector-partnerships. 

“This program is about co-production rather than traditional project-based research. We will develop findings and new knowledge in collaboration with the participating companies,” says Paul Davidsson in a news article published Friday on the University website.

Seven out of 10 licenciate positions have already been filled. The first group comes from Sony Mobile, Apptus Technologies, Sigma and Ubisoft (formerly Massive Entertainment). The program is expected to start in May.
