Lappeenranta University of Technology


Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) is an agile, international science university – a pioneer in combining technology and business ever since 1969. Our strategic focus areas are green energy and technology, sustainable value creation and our role as an international hub of Russian relations. LUT’s operation is solution-focused and characterized by ”open your mind” thinking: crossing boundaries open-mindedly, together.

LUT has three faculties: LUT School of Technology, LUT School of Industrial Engineering and Management and LUT School of Business (LSB). LSB is the faculty primarily involved in Family Business research although there is growing interest outside the faculty as well. In LSB there has been interest in family business research for more than a decade and over the past years members of the LSB staff have become more active also in IFERA contributing to the development of the field in a variety of ways.
