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.


The inauguration of Luleå University of Technology's 50th anniversary takes place digitally on 9 September 2021. Exactly 50 years since the start of the University Unit for Higher Education and Research in Upper Norrland. The celebration then continues in various forms during the autumn of 2021 and the spring of 2022. We started in January 2021 to tell stories about the university in the form of articles, pictures and interviews, quizzes and challenges. We will continue to add program items until June 2022.
