What is interdisciplinarity?
In an increasingly complex world, research is needed that can see both breadth and depth in the major societal issues. Interdisciplinary education and research have always been an important part of what makes us LiU. This is where researchers, students and collaboration partners meet across borders to find new perspectives and solve complex societal problems.
The drivers of progress
Strategic research areas
The strategic research areas (SRAs) are an initiative of the Swedish government to foster world-leading research in Sweden, in selected areas. Linköping University receives funding in five of the designated research areas, and in three of these Linköping University is the main applicant. In addition, LiU researchers participate actively in the fields of e-science and transport research.
