VALS Researchers – get relief and contribute to social impact

MaU Innovation is currently investigating the interest in developing a service that can relieve you, as a researcher at Malmö University, in your work. The service would mean that we, at MaU Innovation, develop and finance a concept where students contribute to relieve you as a researcher in activities related to usefulness. For example, tasks related to market research, prototype development, user testing, graphic design, intellectual property, user dialogue or similar. The aim of the position is to increase the exploitation and accessibility of research results at Malmö University.
