Future Week 2019

Which countries will be the superpowers of tomorrow? Will robots take over? How long will we work for – and on what terms? What will we eat in the future? What does societal 'transition' actually involve? These are some of the questions that Lund University's researchers will be asking during panel discussions, seminars and exhibitions during Future Week 2019.

A compass with the word future on it

Lund University's first popular science Future Week will be held from 14 to 20 October 2019.

The Future Week will be an annual event. This year's theme is Transitions. What are the transitions we have to make? What are the ones we want to make? Which transitions do we preferably want to avoid?
