Brunnshög - Summary in English

Around the highest point in Lund, a new neighbourhood takes shape in Northern Europe's most attractive environment for enterprise, research and education.

Lund Northeast

Northeast of the University building in central Lund, you'll find some of the world's foremost institutions of research and education, next to leading companies in IT, pharmacology and food.

In the Ideon Science Park, with the new landmark highrise Ideon Gateway, the companies of the future are growing to new heights. The number of good ideas per square-metres is probably among the highest in the world.

From the top floors there is a magnificent view of the landscape and Øresund. A view that changes as Lund's new neighbourhood grows. Gently, well-planned and attentive to people's needs.


Lund University - the largest Nordic centre of education and research -– is building MAX IV in the area, with ESS right beside it. Planning is taking place in cooperation with the City of Lund.

MAX-lab, Lund University, is a Swedish national laboratory which supports three distinct research areas: Accelerator physics, research based on the use of synchrotron radiation and nuclear physics using energetic electrons. Time at the facility is shared between groups working within these three fields. MAX IV will be the next-generation Swedish synchrotron radiation facility. It replaces previous outdated facilities.


The European Spallation Source in Scandinavia, the world's most powerful neutron source, will be used for research in strategic areas such as biology, nano and energy technology and materials and engineering science. The facility, located next door to MAX IV, will be an important hub in the European infrastructure for research, and will be used every year by thousands of researchers in academia and industry.

Lund Northeast - The new district - Phase 1

Location: Latitude 55°43' N, Longitude 13°13' E. The area is located around the highest point in Lund, 89 metres above sea level, just beside the Kungsmarken nature reserve and one of the oldest golf courses in Sweden.

Area: 100 acres. Planning: 70 per cent activities (companies, university institutions, schools, shops, restaurants, hotels, cultural premises etc.), 30 per cent housing (single- and multi-family dwellings, student accommodation).

City of Lund founded in the year 990

General: The City of Lund is Scandinavia'’s largest centre for education and research thanks to Lund University and Ideon Science Park, with many young and innovative companies. It’'s home of several major international companies and one of the country’s largest university hospitals with care and research of top international class. Substantial investments in core activities in health care, school, child care and elder care. Selected several times as Sweden’s best school municipality, and in 2004 as the best youth municipality.

Population: With 115,000 inhabitants, 35,500 students and researchers, and more than 130 different nationalities, the city has an air of diversity, youthfulness and curiosity. Some 63 per cent of the population aged 25-64 have higher education.

Industry: Business life is characterized by innovative companies, many of them connected to university research. Fields of strength in Lund include IT, telecom, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, medical technology, packaging, energy & environmental technology, design and nanotechnology. The largest employers - apart from the municipality, health care in Region Skåne and the university - are Axis, Tetra Pak, Sony Mobile, ST-Ericsson, Alfa Laval, Gambro, and Flextrus AB.

Skåne/Øresund region

General: The southernmost part of Sweden is at the centre of one of Europe's most expansive regions, with a high standard of living in the form of housing, health care, school, child care, proximity to nature and culture. Major cities in the vicinity are Malmö and Copenhagen. The area holds a good network of local, regional and international communications, including several major airports and harbours, and the Øresund Bridge linking Sweden with Denmark.

Population: The Øresund region is the most densely populated part of Scandinavia. More than 3.5 million people live here. Purchasing power is among the highest in Europe.

Industry: Business in the region displays great breadth, with many internationally successful companies. Increasing cooperation between Lund and Malmö contributes to positive development. The region has 14 universities and colleges, about 140,000 students and more than 12,000 researchers. Some 80 per cent of the population speak English, and the supply of highly educated manpower is very good.
