In order to stimulate research and collaboration across the department’s many disciplines and interests, we have formed a series of research clusters. They are to serve as fora for specialized and thematic discussions, to help organize conferences, workshops and lectures, stimulate production of papers in peer review journals as well as position papers, and come up with new projects and applications for external funding for projects and PhD positions. The overall goal is to create a dynamic research environment that attracts students and researchers from Uppsala and other universities.
These groupings are informal but aim at having a recurrent activity once or twice per semester. You can be part of one or several clusters as well as participate in any cluster activity across the department.
