Our profile

Örebro University is a prominent broad-based university offering strong professional degree programmes and conducting research that spans no less than 36 subjects across all disciplines. The knowledge fostered at Örebro University is disseminated and benefits society. In the same way, ideas and needs from the world around us inform the university’s activities and development.

We have gathered leading-edge expertise within three areas: AI and robotics, Food and health, and Pollutants and society. Within these profile areas, researchers come together across disciplines to broaden perspectives within education, research, and collaboration, ultimately leading towards a knowledge-driven society. All this rests on a multidisciplinary platform designed to contribute to a sustainable future.

Although they do not capture the full range of our activities, these profile areas are key elements of who we are.
