The dean's decision meeting

As of 2018, all decisions made by the dean – including the signing of research applications – are made at decision meetings once a week. This procedure ensures a higher quality in the decision-making process and clarifies the process for all parties. Meetings are held on Mondays 10.00-11.00 until further notice. All meetings are held in meeting room NIB0514, unless otherwise noted.

For dates and times, please see the Swedish version.

Should the dean be unable to attend a decision-meeting, the pro dean will step in. On rare occasions the meeting might be cancelled.


1. No later than a week before the decision meeting:

Add your item to the agenda by sending an e-mail to TS_Dekan@mah.se no later than a week before the decision meeting. Please include the following:

  • Description of your case, its background and how the matter has been handled within your department
  • All the documents that are needed in order for the dean to make a decision (beslutsunderlag)
    The following is required in regards to research applications:
    - Abstract
    - Budget, including specifications of external co-funding (if applicable)
    - Checklist signed by your economist, the head of your department and applicant(s) 
  • A clarification of what decision it is that you need
