Review and recommendations by the SciLifeLab International Advisory Board

Published: 2019-06-12


The report is in. Following their review of and visit to SciLifeLab earlier this spring, the SciLifeLab International Advisory Board (IAB) has now released a comprehensive evaluation document summarizing their view on our center. This 3rd IAB visit was the first of its kind in that it covered the entire SciLifeLab community and all stakeholders.

You can access the full review below, as well as leave comments on its content.

“The report is positive on many aspects and gives many good recommendations for the future regarding the management and organization of the national infrastructure and the data life cycle”, says Siv Andersson, Co-Director of SciLifeLab.

“It also suggests that SciLifeLab should consider a greater emphasis on high-profile research”, says Olli Kallioniemi, Director of SciLifeLab. “Furthermore, the IAB requests action to address the challenges in operating the Campus Solna as a multi-university site, improving research conditions and environments, particularly for SciLifeLab fellows”.

“In its meeting on May 29, the SciLifeLab board discussed the report and set up an action group to address the Campus Solna issues and the research environment concerns”, says Carl-Henrik Heldin, Chairman of the SciLifeLab Board. “The action group includes integration directors and the SciLifeLab director and co-director and is chaired by Ylva Engström (SU). The group should give its first recommendations for the next board meeting in September”.
