      Six-year follow-up of research environments

      The University's five research environments are followed-up within a six-year cycle. The purpose of a systematic follow-up of research environments is to provide basis for continued development of the conditions and quality of research, as well as operational planning and development. The aim is to identify factors and strategies that provide good conditions for high quality research environments, as well as to identify development areas within the research environments. The aim is further to provide an assessment of the quality of the research. Collaboration with the surrounding society in research is also followed-up within the framework of the six-year follow-up.

      General information about the follow-up

      The six-year follow-up is carried out through an external review. The external assessors base their review on a number of assessment areas and assessment criteria, estabished by the University. As a basis of the follow-up, each  research environment writes a self-evaluation. Also, a number of statistical and other data is compiled. These data are used in the self-evaluation and can also be reviewed by the assessors. The assessment panel also carry out a site visit to the research environment.The purpose of the site visit is to supplement the information in the self-evaluation and other documentation.

      Content of the follow-up

      The research environments are followed-up in five established assessment areas:

      • Organization, support services and infrastructure for quality assurance of research
      • Collegial activities, funding and publication
      • The research builds the research and education environment
      • Recruitment, career paths and competence development
      • Questions relating to research ethics and the research’s responsibility for societal development

      Each assessment area consist of a number of assessment criteria. More information about this can be found in the University's Guidelines for six-year follow-up of research environments (document in Swedish). Translated document will be available in august 2022.
