World-class research at your fingertips – Future week 2020

Through the annual popular Future Week, Lund University wishes to spread knowledge about the university’s latest research. The week is aimed at students, the business sector, alumni, the general public and employees who are interested in the biggest future issues of our times. Due to the pandemic many seminars and lectures have left the auditoriums and can instead be seen online. So, no matter where you are in the world, as long as you have internet access and a smartphone, tablet or computer, you have world-class research available at your fingertips.

We have gathered a whole list of knowledge-filled online events in English taking place this upcoming week when the “Future week 2020” kicks off.
