Lund University's international collaborations
The advantages of collaboration
Lund University collaborates in different parts of the world. At home through different groups focusing on different regions in the world. In addition, Lund University is a member of a number of international networks together with many renowned, research-intensive and influential universities.

Lund University has extensive cooperation with Asia in the form of collaboration platforms, networks and ongoing projects. These contribute to raising Lund University's profile in the region and ensuring long-term sustainability in our collaboration with Asian universities.
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.
Latin America is a dynamic region with a strong educational tradition and long-standing academic institutions. Lund University cooperates with several higher education institutions and organisations in the region, in the fields of education and research. Our collaborations are extensive and generate significant mobility to and from Latin America for students, teaching staff, researchers and other staff.
