It is time for Lund University’s profile areas to take shape!
Lund University is now beginning the process of identifying profile areas. The aim is to find five very strong areas that include research, education and external engagement. The University Management sees opportunities for Lund University to obtain a considerable share of the government’s planned investment in profile areas totalling SEK 500 million. The University has previous experience of creating strong research environments and we can also apply insights learned from the RQ20 research evaluation. The University’s potential, breadth and collaborations will be illuminated in the plan that we present, and we also see great opportunities for the profile areas to attract external funding.
The deadline for notification of interest to become a profile area is 15 March 2022. We look forward to the forthcoming process in the lead-up to the application.
You are welcome to take part in the first information meeting on 12 November
12:00-13:00. You register for the information meeting here.
