Research Programmes Board

In accordance with Lund University’s Rules of Procedure, a University-wide Research Programmes Board was established in 2015.

The remit of the Research Programmes Board

The Research Programmes Board shall deal with strategic education matters in education at doctoral level  where a decision at faculty level is inappropriate owing to their University-wide nature. The remit also includes principles for quality assurance and quality enhancement.

The Research Programmes Board is first and foremost a preparatory and advisory body. The vice-chancellor may delegate decisions on certain issues to the Board.

The composition of the Research Programmes Board is regulated in the Rules of Procedure.
