The Board of the Faculty of Medicine (MFS) has held a meeting.

The Dean informed about the public event Forskningens dag (the Research day) on 7-8 November, as well as about the policy for academic leadership and the Leadership Academy that is now in place at the university and which, among other things, will offer leadership programmes for heads of department and for future leaders, aimed at employees who are ready to take on greater responsibility.

She also informed the board that the university management will handle the consultation response to the Research Funding Inquiry and they will also be responsible for the university's input to next year's research bill. The university management has also commissioned a university-wide project to improve how we present the university's educational offerings on the web.

The Dean also spoke about the status report on the research ethics support function (scientific representatives), which among other things provides a digital course in research ethics for researchers from other countries, and about that our ranking in Clinical and Health and Life Sciences has improved in the Times Higher Education Subject Ranking 2024.


The decisions at the meeting concerned the announcement of an associate senior lecturer in medical research within the framework of the university's excellence initiative with a focus on Wallenberg Academy Fellows, where the university contributes with funding, and the allocation of the faculty's infrastructure funds for 2023. In addition to this, a decision was made on the operational plan and resource allocation for the Faculty of Medicine for 2024.
