The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a natural part of the Faculty of Science.
At the Faculty of Science, we work with the UN's Global Goals for Sustainable Development in our research, teaching and administraton. In addition, we focus on disseminating our knowledge to the surrounding community.
The Global Goals have long been central to many of Faculty's researchers. This applies to both our basic and clearly applied research, for example within health and the environment.
In order to ensure that our research results are integrated into society for the benefit of citizens, we focus on disseminating our knowledge both nationally and internationally. The Faculty's researchers also collaborate with global, national and local companies as well as public institutions to ensure that knowledge related to the Global Goals is widely disseminated and applied.
The Facilty's mission is to contribute to a better world in a broad perspective, which includes contributing to understanding and solving global challenges exemplified in the Global Goals.
The faculty's research and teaching are naturally and directly related to many of the Global Goals:
- Goal 3: Good health and well-being
- Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
- Goal 7: Affordable and clean energy
- Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities
- Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production
- Goal 13: Climate action
- Goal 14: Life below water
- Goal 15: Life on land
As a workplace and place of study, we also focus on goal 5: Gender equality. We have made a determined effort to achieve even better equality in management, as well as recruitment and the working environment.
We also focus on goal 4: Quality education.
The Faculty of Science aims to engage the outside world in our work with the Global Goals. This is done, for example, through engaging research, including Citizen Science, public lectures, exhibitions at museums and popular research dissemination in all media. In our study programmes, we focus on the Global Goals so that our graduates can contribute to the sustainable development of the world.
