Centre for Innovation in the Public Sector. This is the name of the new research hub on Campus Helsingborg that will be unique in Sweden. Here, Lund University will gather excellence in innovation in the public sector, with research and contract education in collaboration with other actors.
The research hub is part of the Centre for Innovation Research (CIRCLE), an established and internationally recognised activity at Lund University that brings together innovation researchers.

World-class research at Max IV and ESS
MAX IV and ESS are two world-leading research facilities in the Öresund region. They are located in Lund, 30 minutes from Helsingborg.
MAX IV is a synchrotron light laboratory that 2,000 researchers worldwide are expected to use yearly.
ESS will be the world’s premier materials research facility using neutrons. The facility is expected to host 3,000 visiting researchers annually and employ around 480 people. ESS is expected to be fully operational by 2027.
Global recruiting to attract top talent
Greater Copenhagen aims to be the leading region in Northern Europe in attracting and retaining international talent. The joint career bank enables companies in the region to find labour worldwide, creating Scandinavia’s largest recruitment base of highly skilled workers.
Skilled labour – a joint effort
For several years, the business community, the City of Helsingborg, Campus Helsingborg and the Swedish Public Employment Service have worked together to create a good supply of skills for the region’s companies. They collaborate primarily on tech and IT, industry and manufacturing, and hospitality.
Within the Familjen Helsingborg collaboration, there is also a higher education accelerator which works to increase the number of higher education programmes in the area.
