The whistleblowing function is a form available in the register function (diariet) that can be used to report wrongdoing. The function has now been updated and a new form put in place.

The whistleblowing function supplements the normal channels of communication at the University. In the event of acute danger to life, health or property, call 112. If the situation is serious but not as urgent, call the University’s emergency number 018-471 25 00. If you wish to call attention to problems in the workplace, you should normally contact your line manager and/or safety representative.

Whistleblowing can involve suspicions of wrongdoing that it is appropriate to report to the University but where the normal channels of communication cannot be used. Such wrongdoing may for example concern financial irregularities or corruption, research misconduct, conflicts of interest or outside activities that undermine public confidence.

The whistleblowing function is available to individuals who are engaged in some way at Uppsala University, such as employees, students and trainees.
