It was in solemn forms that the new academy was inaugurated, with cider in the glass. Lars Nyberg, dean, started by giving speeches.
The purpose of the academy is to create a structured and larger research education environment that is common to all doctoral students in the health field.
– We will carry out cross-cutting learning activities within the health perspective, methodology and ethics in the form of recurring courses and seminar activities, says Åsa Engström, professor of Nursing.
A total of 22 doctoral students will be included in the academy.
The Norrbotten Region and the healthcare in the municipalities in the county are also involved.
Karin Zingmark, adjunct professor of Nursing, notes that the investment is beneficial for the development of care in both the Norrbotten Region and the county's municipalities.
