Infrastructure Committee

Denna sida på svenska

Infrastructure is becoming increasingly essential to research and education at Karolinska Institutet, in strategic-academic terms as well as financially. The role of the Infrastructure Committee is to coordinate resources and investments within KI and in relation to Stockholm County Council (SCC) and to national initiatives. The committee reports formally to the Board of Research and focuses mainly on research infrastructure.

The Infrastructure Committee, by decision by the Board of Research, is to inventory and monitor ongoing core-facility and research apparatus projects. The committee is also required to support the vice dean of infrastructure in his efforts to produce a strategy for university-wide initiatives in the field and with next year’s call for central funding for core facilities. 

Committee members will sit for three years, starting 2017-2019, and work in small groups with the following primary focus areas:

  • Core facilities
  • Imaging
  • Future technologies
  • Electron microscopy
  • Research Data Office (RDO) and e-infrastructure informatics
  • High activity sealed source (HASS)
