Among the recipients are:
- Polly Björk-Willén, who will receive a grant for her research on “Language policy in multilingual schools and families”
- Gunnel Colnerud for “Teaching students’ strategies for leadership and leadership development”. Educational sciences projects in the philosophical departments and the Institute of Technology will also receive support.
“We’ve known that we have strong research firmly rooted in different parts of the university, and we are really glad that the Research Council chose this path this year,” Blume says.
In total, 39 applicants out of 279 were granted funds for research in the educational sciences.
