Mission Statement

By 2030, UL will act as a test bed for the development of circular material flows and material usage.
New ways of making and consuming are essential to the transition toward a circular economy. This mission sees UL act a test-bed for the development of circular systems. In doing so, the campus will become a hub for innovation partners to research and demonstrate an array of circular production and consumption solutions.

Sustainable Development Goals
