Research infrastructure

Successful research depends on infrastructure of an internationally high standard in the form of experimental equipment, databases, libraries, collections and biobanks. Uppsala University hosts various infrastructure resources that are accessible nationally and internationally, and by the same token, researchers at the University make extensive use of infrastructure elsewhere in Sweden and abroad.

Below is a list of national and international research infrastructure funded by the Swedish Research Council with Uppsala University as a host.

Data centre with server racks.

Other strategically important research infrastructures

  • Uppsala University researchers are the largest group of users at Max IV and are contributing actively to the building of ESS – not least through leading expertise in construction and engineering.
  • At the FREIA Laboratory physicists and engineers work on the development of particle accelerators and scientific instruments. Particle accelerators are essential to enable research in high energy physics, materials science and life sciences. 
  • SciLifeLab offers a wide range of experimental facilities to support research in health and environmental sciences with a molecular focus.
  • Uppsala Conflict Data Program – database on conflicts around the world.
  • The University Library – a university-wide publication infrastructure for research and higher education.
  • Uppsala Clinical Research Center (UCR) – infrastructure for clinical research with expertise for patient registries, biobanks and all steps of clinical studies.
