“Lund University’s vision is to be a world-class university that works to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.”

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University in Lund has 42 000 students and 7 400 staff based in one of Northern Europe´s most knowledge-intensive areas with additional campuses in cities of Malmö and Helsingborg.

The University offers one of the broadest ranges of programs and courses in Scandinavia, based on cross-disciplinary and cutting-edge research with a distinct international profile, with partner universities in over 70 countries. The university is organized into eight faculties; economics and management, engineering and technology, humanities and theology, law, fine arts, music and theatre, medicine, science and social sciences.

The research is characterized by both breadth and strength and Lund is also known for its world leading research facilities. Two of the world’s foremost research facilities for materials research and life science are established in Lund. MAX IV, which was inaugurated in June 2016, is the leading synchrotron radiation facility in the world. The European research facility ESS will be the world’s most powerful neutron source when it opens for research in 2023. MAX IV and ESS will have a major impact on future scientific and industrial development in both materials science and life science.

Ideon Science Park, Medicon Village and Science Village Scandinavia are closely linked to Lund University, integrating research, innovation and entrepreneurship in the region.
