COMMITTEES: DECISIONS AND MINUTES

The Campus Management Board has appointed a number of working committees with specified tasks. These committees have decided on rules at their meetings and for minutes of their activities. (Minutes will be presented here shortly).

Gas and Chemicals Committee
To facilitate the safe handling of chemicals and gases and to systematically work on chemical issues, there is a Gas and Chemicals Committee at Polacksbacken. The tasks of the Gas and Chemicals Committee are to develop and follow up general and common procedures for handling gas and chemicals at Ångström Laboratory and also coordinate the inventory of gas and chemicals stored in the area.

  • The Committee can be contacted via Campus Management Chemicals Coordinator Esat Pehlivan

Art and Presentation Group
The Art and Presentation Group represents the organisations at Polacksbacken and convenes when necessary. The group addresses questions about the organisations’ wishes to show and market themselves and their results, the setting up and exhibition of works of art and the need and design of information and exhibitions in the public spaces of the buildings. The group will continuously evaluate and, if necessary, submit proposals for revision of adopted procedures and prepare and submit matters to Campus Management or the Campus Management Board for decisions if the need should arise.

Food Council
The Food Council represents the organisations and can gather, evaluate and express opinions and wishes regarding the restaurants’ offerings and services in the Polacksbacken Campus Management area. The Food Council meets about once a semester to improve food services in the area. The council includes the area’s restaurant managers, staff from the departments and the Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students (UTN) café manager.

Council for Educational Facilities
The Council for Educational Facilities (Rådet för utbildningslokaler, or RUL) works to create the best possible teaching and study environment at Polacksbacken. The council provides Campus Management and the Campus Management Board with advice and suggestions regarding the use and equipment of the educational facilities and contributes to an environment that makes world-class teaching possible. The task includes taking into account how future teaching will be conducted and creating the scope for innovative educational development. In addition, the council takes the initiative in proposing improvements and provides advice on requests received from the organisations on Campus Polacksbacken. The council has made a big difference for the current teaching environment and has been very active in planning the New Ångström.

The council is composed of representatives from the faculty, all educational departments on Campus Polacksbacken, the Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students and Campus Management. It receives proposals from the administration, departments, employees, students and others.
