Innovation and Product Realisation
MDU's research in Innovation and Product Realisation endeavours to underpin and stimulate innovative power and creativity to produce new products, services and production methods.
Almost everything we see, hear and experience is the result of the ideas of human beings. Innovations and efficient solutions to both new and old problems are what is driving societal development forwards. Here problems are considered from a broad and interdisciplinary perspective where change processes, product realisation and information design are taken into account. In this way the researchers want to create the conditions and working tools to produce sustainable and competitive products and services.
Collaboration a natural part
Collaboration with companies is a natural part of this research specialisation. Included among the partners are ABB, Bombardier Transportation, AB Volvo and Scania CV.
The researchers within this specialisation collaborate in several academic networks, for example the Design Society, Svenska Produktionsakademien, Weschool, Arbetsplatsnära Forskning och Utveckling (AFoU, Scientific Work for Industrial Use) and the Swedish Quality Management Academy (SQMA).
Innovation and Product Realisation has a common third-cycle subject area, Innovation and Design, which is an interdisciplinary research programme in which knowledge of the development process from idea to finished product is deepened. Innovation and Design has a specialisation towards engineering and industrial applications, and also projects in collaboration with the public sector and civil society.
MDH Living Lab - methods for collaboration
MDH Living Lab is an arena for method development that strengthens collaboration between MDH, companies and the public sector. Through the development of methods for co-production, opportunities for increased efficiency, creativity and innovativeness are created. The vision is to contribute, through collaboration, towards a sustainable society from a holistic perspective.
