Together we explore and create – to benefit the world

Every year LTH publishes about 100 doctoral theses and 1 700 research findings that pave the way for scientific discoveries and new innovations improving society. Within research there are seven areas with special, interdisciplinary excellence: aerosols, AI and digitalization, circular building industry, energy transition, nanoscience, photon science and technology for health.

At LTH there is scope for brilliant research and inspiration for the creative development of technology, architecture, and design. Over 1 000 researchers at LTH are working hard to create good living conditions for people and promote more careful use of the Earth’s resources.

LTH’s collective excellence in research is gathered in seven profile areas. These research areas have special strength and potential, and with them LTH can further utilize synergies, mobilize expertise and build strong collaborations with the private sector and society as a whole.

  • Aerosols
  • AI and the pillars of digitalisation
  • Circular building sector
  • Energy transition – power and transport
  • Engineering health
  • Nanoscience and semiconductor technology
  • Photon science and technology

LTH has a part in world-unique infrastructure in MAX IV and proximity to ESS. An interdisciplinary ecosystem is emerging around these facilities, with LTH and Lund University as a driving force.

LTH has a central location in the Öresund region, the Nordic region's largest transnational co-operation area in terms of population. There are close to four million inhabitants, prominent universities and colleges and a great demand for education, research, and innovation.
