Research projects

The Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities (SVT) is in charge of and participates in a range of larger and smaller research projects. SVT has the last couple of years successfully won several bids for external funding, particularly from the EU, but the centre also has several self-funded projects. Below you can find information about some of the projects at SVT. All the projects SVT has participated in are available in the project archive.
