Umeå Plant Science Centre UPSC

Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology/ Department of Plant Physiology

In 1999 The Department of Plant Physiology at Umeå University and the Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) joined to create Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC). This was initially only a “virtual centre”, with both departments located in different buildings on the campus, but with coordinated teaching, PhD education and seminar series. In 2001 the two departments moved together to create a common scientific environment and new facilities – in particular a new growth facility – were constructed.Although now housed together in the same building, UPSC remains administratively split between the two universi- ties and each department has its own head of department (prefekt) and all employees officially belong to one of the universities. To balance this split administration, a com- mon board has been appointed by the two universities and is responsible for the scientific environment, common in- frastructure and platforms, common applications and joint courses, and the “brandmark” of UPSC. Research within UPSC is organized in research groups of variable size, each led by a competely independent principal investigator (PI) or group leader, who is either a full professor, associate professor (universitetslektor) or assistant professor (forskarassistent).
