Lund University has many international partners in European countries, within both education and research. University-wide student exchange agreements, university-wide in-depth partner-ships and networks/alliances in which LU is involved create opportunities for long-term collaborations.

Global Dynamic Engagement (GDE) is an approach on which Lund University bases its work to strengthen and further develop its international impact regarding research, education and innovation. Democracy, academic freedom and taking responsibility are the cornerstones of this work.

GDE for Europe

In the roadmap for Europe for 2024, prioritised activities are presented for the university-wide work during the year but does not exclude other issues that may become relevant for prioritisation. This is in accordance with the method used for the platform for strategic work, which Lund University is working to regarding 2023–2024.

  • Further developing collaborations with selected universities in LERU (League of European Research Universities), U21 (Universitas 21) and EUGLOH (European University Alliance for Global Health) through for example doctoral student mobility, workshops and calls for seed funding
  • Further developing cooperation with Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Ukraine
  • Establishing anchor universities in the UK
  • Raising the level of knowledge within Lund University about LERU and EUGLOH and increase understanding of the different options for the University that developments at EU level make possible
