Vision and Aim of the Research School
Vision: To train future researchers with a high competence within the DDLS area. The research school will meet the future needs within data-driven life sciences in R&D, industry, health care and society at large.
Aim: To create a collaborative network and an environment in which synergy between education, research and innovation is reflected and strongly integrated into graduate education. To provide PhD students with a context, knowledge and skills necessary to perform cutting-edge research within the field of DDLS and with a direct impact on the societal challenges we are facing.
The research school is embedded in the organizational structure of the DDLS program and is led by the Research School Director (RSD), who also chairs the research school management group (RSMG). The Research School Director works closely with the research school managers and personnel from the Operations Office (OO).
The research School Management Group consists of representatives from: the DDLS research areas, the industry, the SciLifeLab training platform, Ethical conduct representative and PhD students and are appointed by the DDLS Steering Group. It is an operative group with several responsibilities and mandates. The constitution of the group reflects the DDLS program and the members will provide input and experience within the areas that are important for the DDLS Research School.
There are several advisory organs that provides input to the DDLS Research School: DDLS National Reference Group (DDLS NRG), DDLS fellows, DDLS Research Area experts groups and Training Reference Group (TRG). These advisory organs ensure input on a national level from all partners as well as DDLS expertise.
