By means of our interdisciplinary research in four strategic areas – Health Promoting Work, Innovative Learning, Intelligent Industry and Urban Sustainability – the University contributes to the work of tackling many of the challenges our society faces.
Research that makes a difference
We tackle societal challenges
We contribute with knowledge and creative solutions that will make it possible to create cities that will endure, cities that use natural and human resources responsibly for coming generations. Similarly, our research contributes to tackling societal problems like the increase in mental ill health, an aging population, segregation, violence and rising inequality.
Our research also leads to the development of long-term sustainable production, resource efficiency and innovations regarding people’s learning in educational and work environments within both the public and the private sector.
The University offers third-cycle programmes in technological disciplines, in social sciences and within health and healthcare.
