About the IIIEE
The IIIEE's research and education advance strategies for sustainable solutions. We explore and advance knowledge in the design, application and evaluation of policy and business strategies and concrete actions to meet global environmental challenges. The IIIEE works at the nexus of economy, industry and the environment, and we believe that a profound industrial transformation is a precondition for a sustainable future. We strive to advance strategies for sustainable solutions pursued by public authorities and businesses – internationally, nationally and locally.
The IIIEE research and education has a genuine interdisciplinary approach synthesising insights not only from economic theory and practice but also from natural sciences, engineering, political science, organizational, legal and behavioural studies. Researchers and lecturers at the IIIEE have backgrounds in various disciplines and the IIIEE cooperates closely in education and research with other universities worldwide. We believe that a true interdisciplinary approach is required to meet the sustainability challenges of today and tomorrow.
The IIIEE research and education is action oriented and performed in close collaboration with business and other societal partners. Partners are actively involved in our activities through lectures, seminars, case methods, study visits and research projects. We strive to create a bridge between academia and practice to meet sustainability challenges.
The IIIEE is a unique centre and node for interdisciplinary research and education within Lund University. We are located in the Öresund region, which is one of the most dynamic regions in Europe, with the ambition to become one of the most creative and sustainable city-regions in the world. Lund University and the Öresund region provide a dynamic platform for research and education on advancing strategies for sustainable solutions.
