Researchers appointed sustainability talent
Jonas Grafström, researcher in Economics, has been selected as one of Sweden's sustainability talents.
Luleå University of Technology receives close to SEK 17 million in research funds from the Swedish Research Council to five different projects, including non-flammable and environmentally friendly batteries for electric vehicles and the conversion of carbon dioxide into chemicals.
Luleå University of Technology has been granted funding by the Swedish Energy Agency for a preparatory study, and hopefully, within a few years, they can test to produce bio jet fuel on Swedish forest–based residues - and test-fly it on commercial flights in Sweden.
During the year, Luleå University of Technology has gotten 17 new Professors, 73 new Doctors and three Honorary Doctors. The achievements were celebrated traditionally at the University's academic ceremony.
