Communication Focus Group


The Communication Focus Group’s aim is to provide the junior faculty at Karolinska Institutet with information through our web site, emails, seminars and workshops. Our mission is to keep up to date and informed about the junior faculty’s opinion regarding issues related to early-career researchers.

The communication Focus Group work is essentially to act as the link between JF and junior faculty at KI but also between the junior faculty and KI leadership.



Our goals are to:

  • Conduct the yearly web survey
  • To administer/manage the information flow:  

                                              -  Between JF and KI junior faculty

                                              -  Between JF and KI leadership

                                               - Within JF Steering group


Ongoing/planned activities

The yearly JF survey was closed in April 2017 and we are now analyzing the data. A report will be sent out to all junior faculty as well as KI leadership.

We are currently administering the survey conducted by the National Junior Faculty. Planning our Facebook and LinkedIn pages that will be released after summer
