Strategy 2021 - 2030:
A bold reformer of expertise and an active builder of sustainable future

The transforming world and society need a new kind of higher education

With our new strategy, we aim for making a stronger impact for the benefit of society, by putting people first. Our strategic intent is to be a bold reformer of expertise and an active builder of a sustainable future. To achieve the strategic intent, we have chosen five themes to which we will invest in the coming years:

  • Lifelong learning
  • Phenomenon-based innovation hubs
  • Sustainable development and growth
  • People and culture
  • Digitalization

We implement our strategy responsibly, openly and in wide-ranging cooperation, across borders.

Strategy leans on our values basis: Towards a sustainable future responsibly - solution-driven, humanely, with renewed competence.
