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.

Action plan Europe

Lund University has developed action plans for different regions that will facilitate the creation of collaborations. The action plans are tools in the university's strategic internationalisation work.

The action plan for Europe points out the direction for LU's European education and research collaborations at university-wide level between 2021-2024, and forms a basis for strategic choices and priorities.

You will find the Action Plan for Europe in the Rules and regulations

UIP aims to develop long-term collaborations that will lead to increased quality in research and education. This contributes to the fulfilment of the goals in the strategic plan to develop Lund University as an international university.
