The aim of the University of Gävle is to work for growth and sustainable development by collaborating with companies, the public sector and other stakeholders in the region.

We value our international relations and one of our ambitions is to collaborate with those in our adjacent community. Through collaboration we improve our programmes, courses, and research, at the same time as they become more relevant for our region.

We are looking for more opportunities to collaborate, as we are convinced that this will lead to better development in the future for both the community and our University.
