Research for a Sustainable Future
New digital working methods
The development of digital meetings has benefited sustainability in research in various ways. A few examples:
- It has facilitated the participation of international experts in recruitment procedures and as external reviewers at the public defence of doctoral theses.
- The Academy of Music has been granted funding for a new studio for real-time digital musical activities with no lag, so that musicians can collaborate and play together without needing to travel.
- MAX IV has enabled researchers to study samples in the facilities via remote control from their home laboratories. This allowed research activities to continue during the pandemic, despite many researchers being prevented from travelling to Lund.
Collaboration in Society
Sustainability Week in Lund
Researchers are evaluating climate policy
Climate research can influence decision-makers in society. Researchers from Lund University participate in the UN’s expert panels on climate change (IPCC) and biodiversity (IPBES), they sit on the climate policy council of the City of Lund and take part in the national climate policy council.
