Preliminary program Luleå University of Technology's 50th anniversary

Luleå University of Technology's planning for the 50th anniversary starts in the autumn term 2021. We will start with some profile products and give-aways in the university's store at all university locations. Until the autumn, we focus on the web and things that are aimed at small groups.


We start the celebration of Luleå University of Technology's 50th anniversary in September 2021. Exactly 50 years since the start of the University Unit for Higher Education and Research in upper Norrland. The celebration will then continue in various forms during the autumn 2021 and spring of 2022, but we start already in January to tell stories about the university with articles, pictures and interviews. Hopefully we have come to a different situation with the pandemic this autumn and will be able to arrange pleasant gatherings for employees, students and LTU's friends. We will return with more program points later.
