LiU to continue working from home until 28 March

In accordance with the extended national restrictions that the government presented on 21 January, LiU continues to encourage its students and co-workers to work from home. The decision from the government is initially valid until 7 February, but LiU has previous made a decision that all unnecessary presence on LiU premises is to be avoided. This decision is now valid until 28 March.

Maria Brandén appointed director for IAS

Supportive, committed, and available. Not someone who gets tied up with trivialities. This is how the new director for the Institute for Analytical Sociology (IAS) wants to be. She adds: “I hope and believe I am a good leader.”

New telephony supplier: important about SIM cards

Prior of the change of telephone operator to Telenor on 3 February, an envelope with a new SIM card will be distributed to you. The document contains a temporary telephone number that is incorrect. You will keep the same phone number you currently have, so I ignore that information. Also note that the information on the back of the envelope is addressed to private persons, not companies. Instead, read the information available here on Inside LiU.

LiU and the new pandemic legislation

New legislation came into force on 10 January, which regulates, among other things, how many people may be present on premises at the same time. Operations at LiU come under the new law only to a small degree: we have concluded that the measures previously introduced are still valid and are not affected by the new law.
