LUT does not follow, it shows the way

The core of LUT's new strategy is four big questions of humankind: Are we burning everything out? Are we leaving humanity to suffer from the water it has spoiled? Will we bury our future with our waste? Will we let Europe degenerate to the status of the world's back yard? To these questions LUT will seek answers with a trailblazer spirit.

LUT 2020 strategy is called Trailblazer. Show the way. Never follow. The name reflects the university's courage to think and do things differently. LUT is creating new and alternative roadmaps for the future.

To execute the strategy, LUT is also reorganising its organisational structure. A new dynamic element of the new structure is the upcoming solution-oriented, interdisciplinary research platforms. The combination of a focused and visionary strategy and solution-oriented research platforms allows LUT to take next big leaps in international science world and societal effectiveness.

LUT will utilise its skills and knowledge in data mining and analysis, Russian business operations, and in the internationalisation and growth of SMEs.
