By supporting ideas at an early stage, research can contribute to a positive change in society. The second financial supports within LU's Sustainability Fund is now open for applications.

Through the Sustainability Fund's Sustainable Idea Exploration, you get the opportunity to explore the innovative potential of your sustainability-related research project at an early stage. Apply for up to SEK 150,000 per project.

For who? Researchers and doctoral students at Lund University with a project with innovative potential and with a clear positive impact on ecological, social, or economic sustainability.

For what? The money can be used for activities to demonstrate or verify the innovative potential or for salary funds if relevant.

The application period for Sustainable Idea Exploration is until May 29.

Apply through the LU Innovation website.

The Sustainability fund lets the university stimulate the development of new, sustainable solutions for the future. Through the fund, you can finance activities that are often outside the scope of existing research project, to explore the innovative potential and contribute to a positive social change.
