Knowledge through collaboration and work-integrated learning are the points of departure and the fundamental concepts in which the university’s vision is grounded, and they thus permeate all that we do throughout the entire university. This means that the university sees a need, takes a stand, takes the initiative and becomes a driving force for sustainable development. The university takes action and works together with its surroundings, which means that we always seek collaboration outside the academic sphere. This gives us a good basis for creating the partnerships that are needed for achieving sustainable societal development and as it is expressed in Objective 17 of Agenda 2030 for the global level, implementation and global partnership, but that for the agenda’s realization there need to be partnerships at all levels of society. 

To be able to contribute to a sustainable development through collaboration, what we collaborate on, and with whom, are important, whereby the points of departure are the global goals, democracy, and academic freedom. Especially prioritised areas among the global goals are limiting climate change as well as promoting gender equality and a level playing field.
