World-class research facilities
LTH is part of a unique infrastructure — an interdisciplinary ecosystem in which LTH is a driving force. Two of the world’s leading material research facilities are currently being built in Lund: MAX IV, which will be the world’s brightest synchrotron light source, and ESS, which will be home to the world’s most powerful neutron source. Both of these research facilities will have a significant impact on scientific and industrial developments in the future.
We are favourably located in the Öresund region, the largest transnational collaborative area in the Nordic region in terms of population. In this area, there are prominent higher education institutions and a high demand for education and research from all parts of society.
