One of the university's tasks is to contribute to solutions to key societal challenges. To succeed in this, broad interdisciplinary collaborations within the academy are required in collaboration with activities outside the university.
LUSEM has three institutes; initiatives to mark the presence of the faculty in areas of topicality and societal importance. In 2021, three such institutes have been launched.
Lund University's thematic collaboration initiatives are meeting places for knowledge and development in specified problem areas. Common to the various initiatives is that they are cross-disciplinary, include several of our faculties, as well as external partners in Sweden and the world.
LUSEM is, or have been, participating in some of the initiatives. One of them is led by LUSEM researcher Susanne Arvidsson and is called: Enhanced Value Relevance and Credibility of Sustainable Information (EVRACSI).
