Global Dynamic Engagement

Global Dynamic Engagement (GDE) further develops previous strategic work on internationalisation and builds on existing collaborations at the University. The work is based on continuous analysis of the world around us.

Using this as a starting point, the University produces documentation each year in the form of a framework for the geographical areas where we are engaged, as well as road maps outlining the priorities for the university-wide international work relating to research, education, external engagement and innovation.

Road maps – support in international collaborations

The framework and road maps give those working at Lund University a picture of the University’s engagement in different geographical areas and guidance for international collaborations.

The road maps and short summaries from the framework are presented each year as support for internationalisation work at the University. Even though the road maps are intended for the university-wide level, GDE can be used as a basis for the faculties’ internal international development work and as guidance for staff.
