Mattias Bergström is LTU Business expert on innovation and design processes. He's a doctor and a PhD in 2009 in the subject Functional Product Development at Luleå University of Technology, LTU. After the thesis defense, he has worked at the university as a researcher and led several projects; mainly with the Swedish engineering industry.

Mattias major interest is how groups work together. The goal is to improve the design process, both groups by developing new methods of collaboration and by creating dedicated places for specific collaborations. Mattias is also specialized in getting people to develop new ideas and bring creative processes.

He is responsible for the Innovation Factory, a competition in innovation with students and FUNC, a workshop for companies and municipalities that take advantage of their employees or residents' expertise.

In my spare time Mattias about cooking good food, being out in the woods and fields to fish or hunt and travel. He is also co-owner and driver Bottenvikens Nano Brewery, with the goal of creating really good local beer.
