The SwedPop Organisation

The SwedPop project involves five national partners, taking economic and operational responsibility for the strategic development of the infrastructure. The project is hosted at Umeå University and overseen by a governing board with one representative from each partner. The board is appointed by the vice-chancellor at Umeå University (länk till beslutsdokument?).
