Vision 2021

  • We act and are recognised as a university with a distinct profile and well-documented quality in all of our activities.
  • We are internationally recognised for excellence in research with a problem and solution oriented perspective.
  • We educate students for the society of the future.
  • We implement our basic principles of problem and project based learning, and the University is internationally acclaimed for the documented results of this learning method.
  • We are an attractive collaboration partner for private companies and public authorities and institutions, and our carefully selected knowledge-sharing partnerships are based on mutuality and a shared focus.

We will implement our vision by focusing on 23 actions in the following seven focus areas: Research, Problem based learning, Education, Knowledge collaboration, Competence, organsation and management, Identity, culture and communication and Administration and service.
