Lund University 350 years
During the 13-month jubilee, the University offered nearly 400 events that involved the general public, students, employees, researchers and collaborators.
The celebrations received much media attention and the awareness of the jubilee was high locally as well as in the rest of Sweden. One in five Swedes and more than 50% of the locals were aware that Lund University was celebrating its 350th jubilee.
An eventful jubilee year
During the jubilee year, five well-visited science weeks were organised. These science themed weeks highlighted some of the most important challenges of our time. Two weeks were dedicated to art and music: Live at Lundagård and Art in Time and Space.
We also organised a year-round jubilee course with 36 open lectures at the different faculties as well as the first-ever Alumni Homecoming Weekend and a magnificent party for students and staff at the University.
Other events included a jubilee medal auction, an exceptional super show, the unveiling of a jubilee sculpture in Lundagård and much more.
