Two of the world’s foremost research facilities for materials research and life science are established in Lund. MAX IV, which was inaugurated in June 2016, is the leading synchrotron radiation facility in the world.
The European research facility ESS will be the world’s most powerful neutron source when it opens for research in 2023.
MAX IV and ESS will have a major impact on future scientific and industrial development in both materials science and life science.
Ideon Science Park, Medicon Village and Science Village Scandinavia are closely linked to Lund University, integrating research, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Physics in Lund is now expanding through the construction of two international research centers – MAX IV and ESS. Around the university and the centers you will find a large number of innovation companies, making Lund a motor in the economy of southern Scandinavia. Physicists in Lund are working on the cutting edge of everything from particle physics at CERN to material science. The program starts with a year of basic mathematics, physics and an introduction to science. The second year gives the tools for further studies in physics, through more mathematics, theoretical and modern physics. The third year consists of more modern physics and elective courses, to gain a deeper and broader understanding in physics. In the last semester students choose elective courses and a Bachelor project. On completion of this Bachelor’s program, students are eligible for a number of different Master’s programs in Lund (and elsewhere).
