We aim to:
- Address the world’s most important environmental and sustainability issues, with a strong commitment to research excellence, inter-disciplinarity and genuine and long-lasting international partnerships;
- Conduct excellent research across the fundamental-applied spectrum, including research with real with impact that links directly with end users;
- Provide an inspiring and challenging teaching environment, where students get additional benefits of being in a large and interdisciplinary department. Students at LEC should be able to understand the relevance of their discipline in the context of broader academic approaches, and the world outside academia;
- We aspire to being bigger than the sum of our parts, and making use of the broad range of disciplines. Our breadth should be our strength.
