Krinova received a prize for efforts in Skåne - businesses queuing to move in
Krinova Incubator & Science Park will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year. On Monday the 11th of February, Krinova received a prize from Region Skåne for "extraordinary efforts for Skåne's development in 2018".
– For us who have worked hard for so long, it’s incredibly great. It is a confirmation that everyone is doing a good job together, says Charlotte Lorentz Hjorth, CEO of Krinova Incubator & Science Park.
In 2018, over 200 businesses received innovation and development support from Krinova, over 26 000 visitors came to meetings and conferences. Krinova also had about 20 development projects in the profile area of food–environment–health.
Municipal Commissioner Pierre Månsson (L) says:
– People think that Krinova is diffuse, but we have worked a lot with it to take place.
The municipalities in northeastern Skåne put joint funding into Krinova. This means that it is important for more municipalities than Kristianstad. The price is proof that we have succeeded in reaching out.
In recent years, Krinova has gone from 50 to over 100 companies. More want to be a part of it. There are 20 businesses currently in the queue.
– It's great pressure. We’re looking at another hut. The goal for 2025 is to have 200 companies, says Charlotte Lorentz Hjorth.
Krinova is part of the development of Näsby as a district.
– We need to look at how we can expand, not just housing but more premises for activities and businesses, says Pierre Månsson.
