Yesterday’s meeting of the University Board contained not only, as always, discussions on a number of important issues for the future of the University but also a farewell to several members whose term of office ends on 30 April – including the departing chair, Gudmund Hernes, who has guided the work of the board with a steady hand since 2017. Sincere and heartfelt thanks to them!
Today, at the eleventh hour, the government appointed the eight external members who will serve on the University Board for a three-year period starting on 1 May. We are delighted to welcome our new chair Anne Ramberg and the other new members. They will bring valuable new experience to the board. We look forward with confidence and anticipation to working with them. A partial renewal of the University Board means something of a fresh start and opens the way for innovation, while the remaining members have a very important role in guaranteeing continuity.
The new members of the University Board are:
Anne Ramberg, member and former Secretary General of the Swedish Bar Association, Stockholm, chair
Svante Pääbo, Professor, Max Planck Institute, Leipzig
Linus Tunström, Director, Stockholm
Johan Söderström, Director, ABB, Västerås
