Brand and communications toolbox

Did you find your way to this section because you’re working on assembling some kind of information material, such as a presentation or brochure? That makes us over the moon! It’s a well-known fact that builders need tools. But it also means that you’re engaged in another, never-ending construction project at SciLifeLab. Building our brand. 

SciLifeLab communications are created, not just by the communications team, but by all of us in the community. All the time. Keeping it cohesive will help others get to know SciLifeLab the same way we wish to perceive ourselves – as a unified center.

Our Communications Officers are happy to help.

Tip for planning!
If you would like to plan your communications, our template Kommunikationsplan (in Swedish) might be a useful tool.

Internal communication channels

Slack is an online lightweight communication tool.
The SciLifeLab Slack workspace is https://scilifelab.slack.com – anyone with an email address that ends in scilifelab.se, scilifelab.uu.se, bils.se or nbis.se can immediately register themselves here.

At Campus Solna and in Uppsala’s Navet, there are information screens, also known as our digital signs, that display content using the PLAYipp software.

Innovation Offices Open Coaching sessions at SciLifeLab

The Innovation Offices at SciLifeLab’s four founding universities – KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University and Uppsala University – have together with SciLifeLab launched a new initiative with the aim to support and promote further development of findings and ideas for commercialization. Open Innovation Coaching sessions are offered by these Innovation Offices to SciLifeLab researchers and personnel through individual bookable timeslots for discussions and advice.

The aim is to lower the threshold for early initial discussion regarding commercialization potential and guidance towards available support, in order to further encourage translation of findings made in conjunction to the SciLifeLab technologies for the benefit of society.
