KBC Communications Office

The KBC Communications Office is responsible for internal and external communications in the KBC environment and for giving administrative support to the KBC group.

The Communications Officers support the departments, units and infrastructures at KBC internally in their research and education activities and help to stimulate interactions between the different departments and infrastructures. Externally, the KBC Communications Office aims at spreading information about research activities at KBC, at increasing knowledge about and arousing interest for research and education activities in the KBC environment. The external communication is targeted mainly towards other departments and faculties at UmU and SLU and at the University hospital but also to the national and international research communities and to the society.
