Collaboration and networks at Department of Politics and Society

At the Department of Politics and Society, we value collaboration with external stakeholders and the dissemination of research-based knowledge to the general public. Thus, as part of our researchers’ dissemination activities and interactions with society at large, research is made visible and becomes useful. Researchers as well as students from the department often engage in collaboration with municipalities; private and public organisations and companies; museums, hospitals and other public institutions, and through these activities contribute to the exchange of knowledge both regionally, nationally as well as internationally.

The network aims to develop a common understanding of core concepts such as ‘record’, and find ways to meet the core challenges related to the definition of authenticity and evidence in the digital age, which incorpo-rates reflections on the practice of creating and keeping records in different organizational and national contexts.
