Luleå, with nearly 76,000 residents, is the heart of northern Sweden and the county town of Norrbotten. Including the neighbouring municipalities of Piteå, Boden, Älvsbyn, Kalix and Övertorneå, the Luleå region has 173,000 residents. This is one of Sweden's greatest population densities north of Uppsala within commuting distance of a regional centre.
Even in medieval times, Luleå was one of the most important marketplaces in Sweden. Luleå is a growth region where old and emerging sectors grow side-by-side. With degree and study programmes as well as world-class research, Luleå University of Technology is an important driver of this development.
