Luleå University of Technology's initiative SUN, Natural resources for sustainability transitions, focuses on the assets in the form of ore, forests and water, which are of central importance for realizing the social transformation needed to achieve the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs)s. We know that it is precisely here, in northern Sweden, that the technical development and restructuring of our national basic industries can be a precursor to how to achieve the UN's global sustainability goals. Sweden's important basic industries, ore, wood and hydropower, which are located in northern Sweden, are a prerequisite for successful climate change.
Within SUN there also a graduate school which aims to establish a creative interdisciplinary research environment where PhD students from several disciplines conduct research on Natural resources for sustainability transitions with a focus on ore, wood and water. The graduate school offers courses and other activities with the overall goal of creating conditions for the PhD students to develop a joint construction of knowledge.
