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

Internal European reference group 

An internal reference group has been created with the aim to support and promote the development of LU’s partnerships in the region. The group will primarily implement the action plan for LU’s cooperation with the United Kingdom. The reference group’s main task is to ensure participation, input and support from faculties/equivalent for this work.
