Lund University Agenda 2030 Award

Rewarding the most inspiring contribution to the sustainable development goals

The Lund University Agenda 2030 Award aims to promote innovative, interdisciplinary research on sustainable development by early career scholars at Lund University. PhD students, post docs, and researchers with a PhD exam no older than five years can be nominated.

The winner will be awarded 25 000 SEK and the announcement and prize ceremony will take place at the annual Lund Sustainability Week (Hållbarhetsveckan).

Articles, PhD theses, essays, and other types of publications related to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals that may be of general interest and published within the last five years can be nominated for the award, as well as performances or non-textual artefacts.

The nominations will be assessed by relevance in relation to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, academic quality, and novelty/innovative approach. The nominated work should be interdisciplinary in character and accessible to a wider audience.

How to nominate

Nominations can be submitted by employees and students affiliated with Lund University, and must include a short motivation and explanation of how the nominated research is linked to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. It is not possible to nominate yourself.

Nominations for the award should be submitted no later than February.

Information on how to nominate for next year's award will be announced on this page.

The prize will be awarded annually. The award is considered a scholarship from a tax regular point of view.

The award is a collaboration between the Agenda 2030 Graduate School at Lund University and Elis Textil Service AB - Sweden’s leading B2B textile service provider and the first company in Sweden to be third-party certified for its work with the Sustainable Development Goals.
