About the program

LiU Impact Factory is an eight-month long program for acceleration of social innovations. This means that you as a student at Linköping University can apply to the program that will give you access to an intensified version of LiU Innovation’s offer in order to give you the opportunity to create real impact with your idea.

The program requires a big effort from your side, but it will give you a lot of back. The teams that participate receive, among other things, access to a specially adapted workshop package, an extensive network, workplace and support for financing issues. In addition, the teams get more frequent innovation advice than LiU Innovation otherwise can offer. The participating teams also become a community where they can exchange knowledge with each other.

More than anything, LiU Impact Factory is a program that creates the conditions for success. Among the LiU Impact alumni there are several companies that have been nominated and praised in various national entrepreneurial and innovation competitions.

All students at LiU can apply to LiU Impact Factory. To apply, you must be part of a team that works with an idea that has a social innovation focus as its core. The important thing is that your idea helps to solve problems related to the Global Goals.

The application takes place during the spring term and the program starts up after the summer break. If you already have contact with LiU Innovation before you apply, you create better conditions for yourself to be able to take part of the program. Contact us to book a meeting.
