Project 4.1

During 2021-22, universities and colleges have been invited to participate in a new collaboration with Huseby Bruk AB, where researchers were offered the opportunity to showcase their research results on the theme "forest and water". The collaboration includes, among other things, an artistic installation and an educational program developed in collaboration with the Technical Museum in Stockholm.

The name of the collaboration is "Nyfiken på" and consists of both a physical and a digital production. This is a part of Huseby Bruk AB's work towards creating a knowledge center about the forest and water. The collaboration has its basis in, as well as other things, a declaration of intent from 2019 between the Linnaeus University, the Technical Museum, Region Kronoberg and Husebybruk AB with other stakeholders from previous collaborative projects, including "Huseby i världen". Exhibitions and related activities provide great opportunities to communicate research results to a wider audience, including potential funders and students. In connection to the exhibition, researchers and other interested parties are invited to participate in a dialogue in the form of a seminar.

During the first year, the collaboration was carried out in pilot form and has been successful. It has resulted in three research exhibitions so far, with two researchers from LNU, the Department of Forest and Wood Technology and the Department of Building Technology, as well as a third researcher from the University of Kristianstad.

Now Huseby Bruk would like to invite three new, interesting and bold researchers with their research to be showcased within the project. Starting in April 2023 alongside the opening of the season at Huseby Bruk. Huseby Bruk is responsible for selection, financing of design, installation and pedagogy. Up to 3 individuals or research groups in total can receive support in showcasing their results. We are looking for bold and interdisciplinary themes that can relate to forestry, water, innovation and sustainability in multiple ways – everything from forestry policy conflicts, to digitization and nature as a resource, to behavioral change – are welcomed. If you would like to register as a researcher or suggest a researcher, you are more than welcome to contact:
