LU Futura Think-Tank
With research conducted at nine different faculties, Lund University has a unique opportunity to look at future problems from all possible perspectives. LU Futura, the University’s new think-tank, will take an interdisciplinary approach to important future issues.
The LU Futura think-tank operates in the interface between the University and wider society. Using the University’s collective expertise as a basis, LU Futura aims to contribute facts, analyses and corroborative knowledge.

Our thoughts on the future
Which future issues are we passionate about? And why do we think these issues are worth examining from an interdisciplinary perspective?
An academic think-tank
Through its breadth, with representatives from all of the University’s faculties as well as students, LU Futura sets itself apart from previous think-tanks and future-oriented groups within the academic world.
