Get to know us

Our educational programmes are conducted in close collaboration with industry and public organisations. Several of our educational programmes are unique and students come here to study from all around the world.

Our research has a strong focus on sustainability. That means that much of our research investigates how we can promote more long-term thinking in our society. Together, we make an impact on society and the future. We have successful research environments with inspiring and unique laboratories that attract researchers internationally. Our research is supported by many external funders who all want to make a difference. 

We are well-known internationally for our Swedish School of Textiles and our Swedish School of Library and Information Science. Science Park Borås is also a part of our university; it is a national leader in Sweden when it comes to addressing issues of sustainability and consumption.
