Lund University gives full support to SASNET for the period 2013–2015
August 21, 2017 - 23:45
In 2010, SASNET’s annual subsidy from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) expired at the conclusion of a ten year commitment by that agency. Since then SASNET has existed under insecure and provisional circumstances. We are, therefore, pleased to report that on December 13, 2012, Lund University announced it would allocate resources in support of SASNET for the period 2013–2015. This decision will allow SASNET to maintain its activities and add an assistant webmaster to help in its widening network outreach.
At the same time Lund University established directives that will be in force for SASNET from 2013 on, including the appointment of a new board to be named in the coming months. See the new directives (Föreskrifter, only in Swedish), http://www.sasnet.lu.se/sites/default/files/newdirectives2012.pdf
Although financed solely by Lund University, SASNET will continue its collaboration with other universities, institutes, and NGOs, and maintain databases for all Swedish researchers who wish to be part of our national network.
