Lund University and SEI sign MoU
The relationship between Lund University and SEI has a long history, covering areas such as climate adaptation and low carbon transitions in Sweden, agriculture and food security, and, most recently, with a common 58 MSEK Mistra Geopolitics programme. Future research collaboration is being explored around areas such as bioeconomy.
“I’m very optimistic about this new agreement,” said Torbjörn von Schantz, Vice-Chancellor of Lund University. “It’s not enough for universities to produce facts and data; we need to work with institutes like SEI that can bring our findings to policy-makers.”
The signing of the SEI-Lund MoU took place at SEI’s Stockholm Headquarters on 30 January. The signing event included a seminar with presentations from both partners on areas of interesting research, such as bioeconomy, electric road transport and the Trase supply chain transparency platform.
“SEI believes in strong partnerships with other academic institutions. Together we are better prepared to address increasingly complex sustainability issues and provide support to policy-makers and decision-makers,” said Johan Kuylenstierna Executive Director at SEI.
