In addition to our courses, programmes and reseach we also collaborate with schools and our surrounding community in a variety of ways, for exampel through Scifest and school visiting our department. Our researchers and scientists participate in the public debate and we engage in a multitude of research collaboration projects, both in Sweden and internationally.

Centers and Networks

The Department of Earth Sciences collaborates with many actors, both within and outside the University of Uppsala. Among them are the Centre for Sustainable Development, a collaboration with SLU to promote research and education in sustainable development, Centre for Natural Disaster Science which is a national resource center for natural disasters and the Swedish National Seismic Network which collects seismological data from earthquakes on behalf of the government.
