LUCSUS annual report 2018

2018 was a time of change, for sustainability sciences, wider society, as well as within LUCSUS itself. In our annual report, we share insights into our developments and contributions to sustainability science.

The report highlights our research, education and capacity building work during 2018.

Within LUCSUS, we focused on advancing research within four interrelated themes, which cover land use and governance, climate change and resilience, urban governance and transformations, and sustainability of energy systems.

Highlights from the year include the LUCID research conference, Sustainability Week and the record batch of students starting their studies at the LUMES programme. 2018 was also a very successful year for new funding. We got awarded more than 20 research grants from funding agencies such as Formas, the European Union and Vetenskapsrådet.

During the year, we worked on, and implemented, a stringent travel policy in order to reduce emissions from academic travel. It is a step in the right direction to address the need for urgent transformation to keep temperatures below 1.5 degrees.

We also successfully finalised two years of intense transition negotiations to join the faculty of social sciences, and said farewell to two of our flagship activities: the Earth System Governance secretariat, which moved to Utrecht for a new exciting phase of its programme, and the 10-year LUCID research programme and PhD school.

In 2019, LUCSUS’ focus will be on defining frontiers in sustainability science, and developing a new theme on biodiversity and ecosystems. The centre will launch a new 10-year strategy aligned with Agenda 2030 and the broader Lund University strategy. During the year, LUCSUS will also host major international conferences on agricultural perennials and on loss and damage due to climate change.
