About this Project

This is a project of the Industrial and Urban Symbiosis research group of Environmental Management and Technology division at Linkpöping University. Our main purpose is to scale-up industrial and urban sysmbiosis practices in Sweden and beyond by co-creating and diffusing relevant knowledge and by capacitating students and practicioners. This portal helps us to diffuse some of the knowledge we acquired over the years.

Most of the information about the cases is compiled by groups of students as part of our Master's course on Industrial Symbiosis. These groups, usually formed by four to five students conduct desktop studies and complement these with site visits and interviews with relevantstakeholders. Their findings are compiled in scientific reports, some of which are also available here. Key findings from the student work is condensed, revised, and if necessary complemented with further information to fill remaining gaps, before being published on this portal.
