Swedish Universities of the Built Environment (SBU) is a cooperative organization that includes the activities of research and education at Chalmers University of Technology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Luleå University of Technology and Lund University Faculty of Engineering, which are connected with education of civil engineers.
The organization’s aim is to work for construction-oriented research and education to have greater possibilities of filling the need – created by the trend toward a more sustainable society – for new and interdisciplinary knowledge and competence. Swedish Universities of the Built Environment is organized in seven theme groups.
For contact details of the theme group leaders, see the respective theme group’s page:
A university conference that brings together all the researchers in Swedish Universities of the Built Environment, as well as relevantstakeholders, is held every year in August.
