Research that makes a difference
The university’s research stems from six prioritised areas which are based on the needs of the educations as well as the surrounding society.
High scientific and artistic level is a matter of course, and the activities are characterised by cross-border work and approaches. Collaborations with external actors are an integrated part of our business. This is also a prerequisite for a continued development of the university’s ambitions of being a sustainable university and offering complete academic environments in all prioritised areas.
