A collaboration partner with global reach
Universitas 21 is a global network made up by 25 research-intensive, full-scale and prominent universities in 16 countries. The purpose of the network is to encourage and facilitate mobility between member universities, and to create conditions for collaboration and development projects within education, research and administration. The network facilitates information exchange, the sharing of best practice and expert knowledge.
The overall strategy of U21 is to strengthen and encourage joint research collaboration regarding global, sustainable development to find solutions for global societal challenges.
U21 for doctoral students
U21 Graduate Research Conference is an annual conference for doctoral students held at one of the member universities, on a different topic every year. Doctoral students from Lund University have the opportunity to participate by having their conference fees paid for and receiving travel grants.
U21 for researchers and teaching staff
As a member of the teaching staff or researcher, you can use the U21 network to connect with colleagues at other U21 universities, and together realise ideas about, for example, projects or workshops. Collaboration through U21 usually takes places through projects. The network has a number of established so-called Collaborative Groups with representatives from member universities.
Global Issues Programme
The Global Issues Programme (GIP) is an interdisciplinary exchange programme, focused on different aspects of globalisation. The programme is a collaboration project within U21.
