In the 00s, Christer Fuglesang becomes the first Swede in space, the Öresund Bridge is inaugurated and YouTube is launched. Students at Luleå University of Technology organize the first Swedish competition in Yukigassen, team sports in organized snowball fighting. A career center is initiated to increase students' working life connections. In 2009, the number of newly admitted students increases with a large amount, the master's degree programs in engineering increases by a third.
Next week, May 5, the first letters of the survey will be sent. The mailing takes 5 days to reach a total of approximately 125,000 students, doctoral students and staff at Swedish universities. The survey is the first of its kind in Sweden and will map the prevalence and consequences of gender-based vulnerability and sexual harassment within the academy.
As an extra support in the studies, Luleå University of Technology offers collaborative learning. It is a kind of mentoring activity where students during so-called SI sessions together are helped to solve course assignments. The sessions are held via Zoom and are led by a student who has previously read the course.
Northern Sweden has the potential to show the way for a successful transformation of the basic industry that benefits the whole world. During a Zoom webinar, we talk about Luleå University of Technology's initiative, SUN, which focuses on the assets in the form of ore, forests and water that are of central importance for realizing the societal transformation needed to achieve the UN's global sustainability goals and succeed with climate change.Link to the webinar is https://ltu-se.zoom.us/j/69705856318
