Channels for internal communications
Innovation Offices Open Coaching sessions at SciLifeLab
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.
How do we handle the logotype, the graphic profile and the brand name of SciLifeLab? Read all about it in the brand policy below.
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.
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.
Anyone else: request an invite by emailing email@example.com.

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.
