Utilizing Industry-Academia Collaboration for Better Software


Welcome to LUCAS-dagen 2016, October 20, in Kårhuset, Lund. The objective of the annual LUCAS-day is to inspire and develop collaboration between industry and academia in the field of applied software. The focus of LUCAS-dagen 2016 is to explore the diversified experiences from the last 15 years of mutually beneficial Industry-Academia collaboration.

We have invited Professor Eric Giertz, KTH, to share research results and experiences on the topic. On the technical side Mark van den Brand, Eindhoven University will focus on the industry relevant topic of Model Driven Engineering in High Tech Industry.

When we, as usual, present fresh results from joint research projects, we will also reflect on the different forms of collaboration behind the results. On an organizational level, long-term partners such as Ericsson and ABB will share their experiences and expectations – and so will newer members in the innovation system, such as Bosch.  

When: October 20, 9.30-17.00

Where: Kårhuset, John Ericssons väg 3, Lund
