Lund University encourages you to work with commissioned education

Working with commissioned education provides great opportunities for development, while you contribute to disseminating research findings and gain valuable input from wider society. Lund University therefore wishes to encourage you, as a staff member, to work with commissioned education. All planning, development and implementation of these activities are to take place within the framework of your regular employment.

Pursuant to the regulations for the organisation of contract education at Lund University, all agreements signed regarding contract education, as well as their archiving and registration, are to be handled via LUCE. The same applies to invoicing clients for contract education.
