Our vision is that U-chec (pronounced check) is to be a leading academic and creative center that contributes to the equal and sustainable development of health and welfare in Sweden and internationally.

To achieve this we want to develop multidisciplinary cooperation within the faculty while at the same time wishing to cooperate between other universities and the surrounding society in Sweden and internationally.

U-chec is driven by the recognition that joint efforts across institutional boundaries and disciplines always have added value.
