About LENS

LENS was formed in 2010 as an initiative to strengthen the research on environmental issues at logistics university departments in Sweden.

The core research discipline is logistics, within which projects aiming at contributing to sustainability and knowledge on environmental issues in logistic systems have grown considerably the last few years.

However, all research groups involved have been working in this area for many years and the LENS initiative aims at leveraging the willingness to cooperate in order to reinforce an internationally strong position.
LENS is formed by four universities:
Chalmers University of Technology,
Linköping University,
Lund University, and
University of Gothenburg.
