Várdduo - Centre for Sámi Research

Várdduo - Centre for Sámi Research is a unit at Umeå University, engaged in coordinating and initiating new Sámi and Indigenous research.

The centre facilitates a transdisciplinary environment for researchers and doctoral students involved in Sámi related issues, to meet, share knowledge, and develop further research initiatives, and activities of relevance within the field. In addition (and relation) to research, collaboration is at the core of Várdduo´s agenda. Collaborative efforts involve not only the local, national and international research´ community, but also extend to actors, organisations and institutions of particular relevance to Sámi and Indigenous societies.
