Mats Paulsson

Founder and Director of Mats Paulsson Foundation for Research, Innovation and Societal Development

Mats Paulsson, one of the founders of the construction company Peab, thought that the concept of developing new meeting places and arenas in a strong research and development environment sounded promising. At the beginning of 2011, he formed a foundation whose assignment was to work to enable Region Skåne and Lund University to establish Medicon Village for research and innovation within medicine and other life sciences.
