The 2030 Agenda is the framework for sustainable development that the world's
nations have signed to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, solve the
climate crisis, promote peace and equity and much more. In order to achieve
the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals, research has several
important roles: to identify challenges and conflicting objectives, contribute
to new solutions, generate dialogue and learning between different societal
stakeholders and critically analyse the goals of the 2030 Agenda. Lund
University aspires to be a part of the solution and has therefore initiated a
research programme on sustainable development with postdoctoral fellowships in
various interdisciplinary projects. The projects will not only constitute
platforms for the postdocs' career development, but also form a basis for
national and European applications, and for future environments for excellence
and profiling. The programme is also to develop the postdocs' expertise in
teaching and learning in higher education. More information on the research
programme is available here:
