New board member

Published: 17 May 2021

CDT welcomes Ida Lindh as a new board member.

Ida Lindh works at Skellefteå municipality. She has previously been a municipal councilor for the Liberals, a member of the municipal board and vice chairman of the municipal airport company Skellefteå airport.

Hi Ida! Welcome to CDT! Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Yes, I work at Skellefteå municipality, as strategically responsible for Campus and above all with issues related to higher education and research. Before I started at the municipality in 2017, then as responsible for the innovation support system, I have largely always worked with business development and innovation in various ways. I have also defended my dissertation in entrepreneurship and innovation via Luleå University of Technology.

Why did you accept the role as a Board Member of CDT?
I think that CDT is an exciting center formation and I myself thrive very well in the meeting between academia and business, research and innovation. I also like that there is a strong focus on the results of the projects really leading to more spin-offs, innovations, methods and processes.

What expertise can you contribute to CDT's board?
Hard to say because I have not yet met the others on the board. But I hope that I can contribute with an understanding of both business, the public sector and academia, as well as innovation processes.

How do you see the future of CDT? Is there a special area that you think is important to work with or something that you are particularly committed to?
One of the strengths of CDT is precisely that it is very close to companies and that they run projects in areas that are of great relevance to the business community. There is an enormous amount happening in the area right now, so I think that what bodes well for CDT's future is precisely that sensitivity, and rapid translation of research into actual application.
