Umeå Transformation Research Initiative (UTRI)

Umeå Transformation Research Initiative (UTRI) is available to everyone at Umeå University.

UTRI, Umeå Transformation Research Initiative, is the result of a grass-root initiative from a large number of teachers and researchers to support interdisciplinary research collaboration in the transition to sustainable development.

You can apply for support to develop ideas or to organise events focusing on sustainability. This could involve UTRI organising a workshop for you, aid a pilot study, set up a conference, or offer writing workshops in whatever form you please.

Everyone who is active at Umeå University can apply to develop collaborations regarding sustainable transformation.
