We have a have a long-standing collaboration within several areas of education, PhD programmes, research, administrative functions and external engagement. These collaborations provide increased quality, better utilisation of resources and improved contacts with industry and society, benefiting students and universities as well as society at large.
The universities that are part of the network have a total of approximately 55 500 full-time students, 10 600 employees and about SEK 14 billion in revenue (figures from 2016). This corresponds to about 20 % of the education sector in Sweden within these three areas. The universities’ students and employees are from all over the world. Their research has considerable breadth and many specialisations, and include major research facilities, a university hospital and several innovation clusters in which new and established companies develop. The six universities together account for approximately 20 % of all funding awarded to Swedish higher education institutions from the EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation (Horizon 2020).
Together, the universities create a dynamic whole and a knowledge environment for higher education and research in southern Sweden.
