This programme deals with the multifaceted challenge of developing products, services and technical systems that contribute to increased resource-effectiveness and sustainability.

It is well-known that economic development and human welfare depend on the availability of raw materials and energy. However, the exploitation of such natural resources has many environmental implications such as climate change, resource scarcity and the uncontrolled dispersal of hazardous substances. In times of global environmental problems and concerns about the long-term availability of natural resources such as metals and minerals, incentives for using materials and energy in more intelligent and efficient ways are increasing among governments, companies and other organisations....

The trend of increasing disasters and related losses is a truly global challenge. The changing global risk landscape due to processes such as climate change, urbanisation, and the increasing complexity of modern society poses major challenges for sustainable development and must be addressed with an interdisciplinary approach. A growing number of governments and international organisations acknowledge the necessity of increasing their efforts in disaster risk management and climate change adaptation in order to successfully adjust to changing environments and develop safe and sustainable societies.

The Master’s programme in Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation has support from important national and international institutions, e.g. UN agencies, the Red Cross/Red Crescent movement, NGOs, and national authorities.... [-]

Buildings are responsible for a large share of our global energy use. Energy use is in fact the main determinant of a building’s global environmental footprint, considering its total life span.

Lund University is internationally renowned for high-quality research related to energy-efficient buildings. Our expertise is centred on a whole building perspective, which accounts for inhabitant needs, as well as their comfort and health. The University’s advanced research and its close ties to the building industry creates an excellent foundation for a strong Master’s programme with a largely unique focus on buildings.

Our students will graduate with advanced knowledge, skills and competencies within the area of energy-efficient and environmental building design in cold climates. Our goal is to train highly skilled professionals, who will significantly contribute to and influence the design, building or renovation of energy-efficient buildings, taking into consideration the architecture and environment, the inhabitants’ behaviour and needs, their health and comfort as well as the overall economy....

Drawing on fields such as anthropology, geography, sociology and economic history, the programme provides interdisciplinary perspectives and analytical tools for communicating about problems of sustainability. It represents an important complement to technological and natural science approaches towards sustainability by focusing on the cultural dimensions of consumption and resource use, cultural perceptions of environment and economy, and social science perspectives on the global distribution of environmental problems. A central aim is to help students develop skills in communicating across boundaries separating the discourses of different disciplines, cultural traditions, or the interests of business, politics and social movements. The programme encourages critical scrutiny of the debate about sustainability, but also a serious commitment to improving human-environmental relations worldwide. It covers the major social and environmental challenges of our time, including climate change and climate justice, unequal exchange and use of ecological resources, and the shifting of environmental risks and problems to the poorest parts of world society....

In this programme, you will be provided with the theory, concepts and methods to analyse and better understand the economics, roots and drivers of growth and innovation. The unique focus on spatial dynamics enables you to gain insights on how the areas of development and innovation interplay, evolve and shape the economy in different regions and periods of time.

Innovation is fundamental in the process of economic, social and environmentally sustainable development. Grand challenges such as those we are currently facing; climate change, food security and poverty alleviation, require new technical solutions, new social configurations, new economic models and eventually, new socio-economic and technical transformations. Innovation is also about the diffusion and incremental changes that yield economic, social and environmental benefits for society. In this programme, you will learn the dynamics of both macro and microeconomics of innovation.... [-]

Awarded the EIT Label in 2017

The Challenge

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials....
