As a joint academic effort, SciLifeLab has it’s own organisational structure and governance, but with close links to both the four founding host universities and other universities in Sweden. If you’d like to dive in to the fine print on how SciLifeLab is managed, you’re in the right section!
The two pillars of SciLifeLab are our national research infrastructure and our research community, and their relationship is truly synergistic. The updated Group Leader definition was approved by our Board in November 2019 and replaces previously used terms like “faculty” and “PI”, which tend to be defined differently at each university and often don’t take into account infrastructure and technology expert roles. Follow the link to find guidelines on how we define the concept of Group Leaders, including both research groups and infrastructure units.
SciLifeLab has submitted a proposal to the upcoming Swedish Research Bill. The bill represents the Swedish government’s efforts to strengthen science in our nation and will be made public later during the autumn of 2020.
