Book a planning meeting with us!

Storm is here for you who work or study at Malmö University. We offer an open environment and tools for exploring, experimenting and networking. We also offer you guidance and methods about how you can get a more creative workday, workshop, presentation or meeting. 

But how does it work? How can you utilize our methods and ideas? We asked our Innovation host Julia to explain how it works.

What is a planning meeting?

When you are planning an activity – whether it’s a workshop, conference or seminar, at Storm or elsewhere – you can always contact us for help. In a planning meeting, we discuss the goals and aims of your activity and how to reach them.

Why are they important?

It’s often easier to figure out the best way to do something while talking it through with someone. We can help your mind take a new route and ask questions you haven’t thought about before. Storm has a variety of digital tools, workshop methods and material that we can introduce you to during the meeting.

How do they work?

Make a room booking at storm.mau.se/bokning or email us to book a meeting with one of the Storm team members. Planning meetings usually take around 30 minutes. No preparation is necessary, but we recommend thinking these questions through: What do we want to achieve? How much time do we have? Who is my target group?

Are you intrigued? Please contact us, and we can arrange for a planning meeting right away!

How to make an impact as a student

Are you interested in innovation, entrepreneurship and how you best can share your knowledge and ideas with businesses and organizations?

On September 10, Storm invites you for an introduction about some of the support and services available to you at Malmö University. The aim is to open you up to new ways of thinking, talk about how you can take your ideas further and how Malmö University can help you share your knowledge and ideas with others. 

The afternoon will begin with short presentations from Storm Innovation Hub, Drivhuset and Malmö University’s business developer. Thereafter, we will discuss further in smaller groups or in one to one conversations.

The introduction will be in English but questions and thoughts can be shared and answered in Swedish.

Please let us know if you are coming. Sign up here!

Where? Storm Innovation Hub at Malmö University, Gäddan, Citadellsvägen 7

When? September 10, 15.15 – 17.00

Hoffice at Storm

Welcome to set up office at Storm! Bring your laptop and get started on that to-do-list in a distraction-free zone.

Inspired by the concept Hoffice, the day will be split into 45-minute silent working sessions with energizing breaks in-between. At the beginning of each session, everyone tells the group what they’re going to work on, and at the end of each session we check in with each other to see what we managed to get done.

We guarantee that you will end the day having accomplished even more than you planned for – without feeling drained of energy!

For Malmö University staff and students.

Upcoming Hoffice-days:

Thursday 29/8 
Thursday 26/9
Thursday 24/10 (At Niagara! NIC0541 – K3 studio)
Thursday 14/11
Thursday 12/12

The first work session starts at 09:00
but feel free to arrive and leave whenever
during the day.

Skicka in ett uppdrag till Stormathon

Har din organisation ett komplext problem som kräver nytänkande lösningar? Är ni redo att låta 45 studenter med olika utbildningsbakgrund jobba med just er utmaning i 12 timmar?

Stormathon är en innovationsdag på Malmö universitet. Studenter som är intresserade av samhällsförbättrande problemlösning och innovation kan ansöka om att få delta i Stormathon och sorteras därefter in i tvärvetenskapliga, dynamiska team om fem personer. Alla team jobbar med samma uppdrag under hela dagen och coachas i problemlösningsmetodik och idéutveckling av erfarna processledare. Efter 12 timmars intensivt arbete pitchar varje team sin lösning för uppdragsgivaren och en jury, med fina priser till de vinnande koncepten!

Världens första Stormathon arrangerades den 2 april 2019 med Malmö stad som uppdragsgivare. Läs mer här eller se filmen om evenemanget.

Vi söker uppdrag till nästa Stormathon under hösten 2019! Har er organisation eller ert företag en komplex utmaning som kräver innovativa lösningar? Kan lösningarna bidra till ett bättre och mer hållbart samhälle? Skicka in ert uppdrag här.

Vi tar emot uppdrag till och med den 10 september 2019 för höstens Stormathon. Vi återkopplar senast under september månad.

Stormathon arrangeras av innovationsmiljön Storm på Malmö universitet. Maila gärna oss på storm@mau.se om du har frågor, funderingar eller vill bolla tankar inför ett eventuellt case.

FINAL PROJECT 2.0

Afraid your final project will be put on a shelf to collect dust? Do you wanna take advantage of the knowledge you collected and the result you’ve presented, but don’t know how?

On June 12, Storm Innovation Hub welcomes you – who finished your final project at Malmö University during Fall 2018 or Spring 2019 – to an afternoon about how you can take your final project further.

No matter which area you’ve been working in or which form your final project has taken, there are big potentials for it to grow. Maybe you want to come in contact with potential stakeholders, find your target group, build a prototype or try your ideas on new or potential users. Maybe you want to research it further through science or maybe you don’t know what you want but are interested to learn about your possibilities. We welcome all projects, commercial or non-commercial and at your service you’ll have Storm Innovation Hub, Karriärservice, Business Developers, Drivhuset and Forskarservice.

AGENDA:

14.00 – 15.00 Information from Karriärservice, Drivhuset/Business developers and Forskarservice about which resources and support they can offer.

15.00 – 16.00 Group discussions on how you can develop your project and what you need to get started

Sign up here before June 5! Limited amount of spots.

Movie for Change: Cowspiracy

On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal, number 13 – Climate Action Storm invites you to this springs last Movie for Change and the screening of Cowspiracy – The Sustainable Secret

Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of deforestation, water consumption, pollution, and it is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the whole transportation industry. It’s a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Movie for Change is a free event, where we meet to watch, discuss and reflect upon the subject of positive change.

The last Thursday of every month, between 17-20, we welcome you to a movie night about sustainable development. With specially invited guests we will thereafter address and discuss problems and opportunities for sustainable development connected to the theme of the movies.

The events are co-produced with the Department of Urban Studies, the Leadership for Sustainability master’s programme and Fenix Miljöförening.
