Our research covers a number of different subject areas and is nationally and internationally recognised. It is permeated by our constant strive to set knowledge in motion for a sustainable societal development.
The research at Linnaeus University has breadth. It covers some one hundred research subjects and more than 30 doctoral student subject areas.
This breadth is also a strength in our work for a sustainable societal development, which makes up the basis for our research. In our work, we are determined to set knowledge in motion across subject borders and to integrate research with education and collaboration. Only in this way can we accomplish the multiple approaches required to meet the challenges facing our society.
How we work
Research environment, research area, knowledge platform … We have many names for the things we love. The more than 150 research groups of different types that can be found at Linnaeus University in many ways make up the basis of our research: a number of researchers within one or more disciplines who work together to achieve common goals.
Some of our most prominent research environments, our cutting-edge research, have been given the title Linnaeus University Centre. These research groups conduct research of particular national and international prominence.
Meeting societal challenges with knowledge in creative environments that integrate education, research and collaboration is something that permeates our work at Linnaeus University. Seven of these so-called knowledge environments have been given the special title Linnaeus Knowledge Environment and gather researchers and research groups through an interdisciplinary way of working.
We also conduct research in the form of research projects. These can range from the research carried out by doctoral students to comprehensive international projects, and are often carried out within one research group.
Roughly 300 doctoral students are active at Linnaeus University. We offer third-cycle courses and study programmes that lead to a licentiate or doctoral degree at all faculties, in more than 30 different subjects.
