The Department of Physics and Astronomy participates in the science festival SciFest to stimulate interest in science and technology in youth and the general public.
Collaboration within Science and Technology
The Department of Physics and Astronomy is part of the Faculty of Science and Technology. The Faculty of Science and Technology has a common unit for collaboration with schools, industry and society. The faculty organize an annual science festival, SciFest where our researchers participate and contribute.
Continuing education for professionals
Within the division of applied nuclear physics, Nordic Academy for Nuclear Safety and Security is located, an interdisciplinary competence platform with researchers and teachers from different universities complemented by experts from regulators, agencies and the industry. Through NANSS we give courses in nuclear safety and security, and about nuclear technology, for professionals in the field. You can find more information on the NANSS pages.
Uppsala University’s Alumni Network is a network for former students and a meeting place for career development and forging professional contacts.
The Alumni Network is for everyone who has studied or worked, or is working at Uppsala University. Also our honorary doctors, guest researchers, board members and others close to the University are regarded as alumni.
Uppsala University is an active participant in a large number of leading international research collaborations such as CERN, ESO, ESA, ESS, GSI, IceCube and MAXLab. Over the years Uppsala has been awarded two Nobel Prizes through Manne Siegbahn and his son Kai Siegbahn.
