Umeň University

Umeň University or Umeň universitet is a state university in Umeň , Sweden. There is also a separate Umeň Institute of Technology at the university.

The university was founded in 1965 and during the seventies it became known as the "red university" due to a large number of student strikes and a large share of left-wing politically active students. Since then conditions have normalised and Umeň University now has about 20,000 students.

Internationally, the university is known for research relating to the genome of the populus tree (Life sciences), contributions to the Gleason problem and function spaces on fractals (mathematics) and its school of industrial design which gives degree programs in English open to students from all of the world.
