The future workplace – lessons learned from the conference

I have participated in a very interesting conference arranged by the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions (SUHF) on the theme of administration quality – changes in ways of working.

Several researchers from Swedish higher education institutions shared knowledge and ideas about how, based on experiences from the pandemic, we can create even better conditions for our work. The questions discussed were: what have we learned and what are our thoughts on working at home versus working on campus? What will the campus of the future be like? Among other things, they presented an outdoor office, which aroused my interest. And there was also this important question: what form can a sustainable working life take when we can work anywhere the whole time?

The conference offered exciting knowledge to integrate into LU’s work on the return to campus in the autumn as well as the University’s more long-term work on the future workplace.
