Linköping

City of Linköping

Linköping is Sweden´s fifth-largest city. Linköping has old traditions as a centre for administration as well as military organization. Its history as a modern industrial city goes back to 1937, when SAAB started airplane manufacture in a plant in the suburbs.
Linköping municipality, County council, SAAB AB, University and Ericsson AB are examples of local enterprises. Next door to the university is Mjärdevi Science Park with about 260 companies and 6,000 employees. Here are spin-off companies and research groups etc.

Linköping University

LiU, as it often is called, is a multi-faculty university where research and education are equally important. It is one of Swedens largest universities with 27,300 students and 3,900 employees.
Since the start in the late 60’s, Linköping University has been an innovator, creating new study programmes and new ways to tackle research problems. Innovation has become a tradition. Furthermore, LiU has always had strong dialogue with the surrounding business sphere and the community at large, both in terms of research and education (problem based learning). What LiU creates should be of benefit to the public.

The LiU campuses are situated in Linköping and Norrköping in East Sweden. The university is an important driving force for regional development. However, the mission is greater—Linköping University is a national and international player.
