Björn Pernrud

Senior Coordinator

In my role I provide support to researchers and project leaders in connection to the regulations, administrative routines and formal conditions governing their research projects

There are often many exciting challenges and questions popping up when researchers and projects interact with funding agencies, other universities and the laws and regulations providing the formal context for research and research activities. I'm specializing in coordinating agreement processes, personal data protection, and sometimes mediating between the legal framework and the academic. 

I have a background in sociology, and my PhD was oriented towards gender and feminist studies. After my PhD I have mostly worked administratively and with coordination, although with a couple of shorter visits to doing research, as I studied ways of organising research centers, and participated in a project connected to the teachers' education.
