Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has around 46 000 students and more than 8 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
Two of the world’s foremost research facilities for materials research and life sciences are established in Lund – the synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV and the European Spallation Source (ESS), the world’s most powerful neutron source, which will be fully operational by the end of 2027.
These facilities together with the new Lund University campus in Science Village will constitute a highly visible, world-leading center for research in materials and life sciences, cultural heritage and environmental science.
The development of this science complex will create an international hub for research, education and innovation in which Lund University plays a central role.
