Pilot project for interdisciplinary study programmes
On 15 December 2021, the Disciplinary Domain Board of Humanities and Social Sciences decided on a pilot project for interdisciplinary initiatives in education.
Pilot project – interdisciplinary initiatives in education
The Disciplinary Domain Board decided to launch a pilot project aimed at identifying opportunities for and barriers to interdisciplinary courses and study programmes within the disciplinary domain and in collaboration with the wider community.
The pilot project will be carried out by a working group appointed after nominations by the Faculty Boards. The working group must submit a report to the Disciplinary Domain Board by 21 October 2022. In addition to opportunities for and barriers to interdisciplinary courses and study programmes, the report will also address the relationship between interdisciplinary courses and study programmes and the regular offering of courses and study programmes, and between interdisciplinary courses and study programmes and contract education. Furthermore, the report will describe any unutilised or underutilised resources for interdisciplinary courses and study programmes that have been identified.

Allocation of funding for infrastructure investments
The Disciplinary Domain Board decided that the funds earmarked by the University Board for research infrastructure in 2021-2022 will be managed by the Centre for Digital Humanities Uppsala (CDHU). The funding is expected to be available for five years.
For this funding, CDHU will primarily develop activity-based infrastructure support in two parts to support research within the entire disciplinary domain:
- staff with specialist expertise in digital methods for humanities and social science research
- digital resources for the processing and temporary storage of research data.
