City of Linköping

Linköping is Sweden’s fifth-largest city. Linköping has old traditions as a centre for administration as well as a military organization. Its history as a modern industrial city goes back to 1937, when SAAB started airplane manufacturing 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 Linköping Science Park with about 350 companies and 6,500 employees. Here are spin-off companies and research groups etc.


Linköping University

Linköping University (LiU) is a multi-faculty university where research and education are equally important. It is one of Sweden’s largest universities with 32,000 students and 4,000 employees.

Since the start in the late 1960’s, LiU 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 researches and creates should benefit to the public. The university is an important driving force for regional development. However, the mission is greater—LiU is a national and international player.

Linköping University will never rest on its laurels.

The LiU campuses are situated in:

– Linköping: Campus Valla; Campus US

– Norrköping: Campus Norrköping

– Stockholm: Campus Lidingö
