About Lund University Agenda 2030 Graduate School

Agenda 2030 is the framework for sustainable development that the world’s nations have signed to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, solve the climate crisis, promote peace and equity and much more. In order to achieve the goals, research has several important roles: to identify challenges and conflicting objectives, contribute new solutions, generate dialogue and learning between different societal stakeholders and critically analyse the goals. Lund University aspires to be a part of the solution and has therefore started a graduate school focusing on societal challenges, sustainability issues and Agenda 2030.

Global goals

Lund University invests SEK 64 millions in a graduate school focusing on societal challenges and Agenda 2030, the first of its kind in Sweden. 12 doctoral students from all faculties will be financed through the graduate school. All doctoral students will be enrolled to a specific research studies programme, and simultaneously take part in the university-wide interdisciplinary research studies courses, developed on the basis of the issues defined by the global goals.

There will also be several activities linked to the graduate school in order to be part in the global sustainability agenda and to advance the research front on issues concerning Agenda 2030, for example seminars, conferences, study trips and collaboration with various societal stakeholders.
