► CAMM:

CAMM is the Centre of Advanced Mining and Metallurgy established at Luleå University of Technology. Based on strategic funds from the Swedish government it is a centre of excellence in mining and metallurgy and will build world class research within the field. CAMM will be evaluated after 5 years by the end of 2014.


► Institution:

Composed of 2 faculties, 17,000 students and 1,600 employees, Luleå University of Technology (LTU) conducts world-class education and research in the fields of engineering, economics, media, music, social sciences and health sciences. LTU characterizes itself for its strong international relations and has large experience in managing student and staff mobility, for example participating in Erasmus since the 1990's. The ECTS mechanism and the standardized Diploma Supplement are used for all international collaborations and exchanges.

Luleå University of Technology has an annual turnover of more than EUR 160 million. Today the University has 1,600 employees and 17,000 students. Research is carried out in close cooperation with companies such as Shell, Ericsson, Scania, LKAB, Airbus, Volvo Aero, IBM and international universities.



 

 

 

► City:

A centre for growth, Luleå is situated in the province of Norrbotten that spans a quarter of Sweden´s surface area.
Luleå is truly a place of contrast. You will be surprised by the international atmosphere while at the same time the closeness to unspoiled countryside opens up for unlimited possibilities. Luleå can offer you action-packed adventure but here you can also enjoy tranquillity, peace and quiet. In winter the town is clothed in white but in summer it´s embraced by sun and heat.  Luleå, the town by the sea and part of Swedish Lapland.
