Action plan for internationalisation
Promotes internationalisation at LU
Lund University has decided on an action plan for international-isation for the period 2019-2021 with the aim of promoting internationalisation at the university and increasing the university's attractiveness.
With the action plan, Lund University wants to strengthen the work with internationalisation in order to contribute to a democratic knowledge society, characterised by diversity and tolerance. The action plan shall be followed up annually by the International Council.
Four overall goals
- Students must develop their international experience and intercultural skills,
- The quality and utilisation of research shall be strengthened through in-depth international work,
- Deepening international cooperation to contribute to the work on the global challenges and Agenda 2030,
- Employees must have good international experience and intercultural competence.
A total of 36 sub-goals must be met before the end of 2021. Each sub-goal has its own delivery date.

Now you can follow the work with the Action plan's sub-goals in the blog. Several sub-goals have submitted their final reports.
Background – why an Action plan for internationalisation?
The Action plan is based on the university's strategic plan 2017–2026, in which internationalisation is one of six priority areas, and recommendations in the inquiry into increased internationalisation of universities and colleges (SOU 2018:3 and SOU 2018:78). With the Action plan, the entire university gets a tool that makes the work with internationalisation more efficient and common obstacles are removed, and the university's development as an international university continues.
