Welcome to the Graduate School in Population Dynamics and Public Policy!

When Umeå University was awarded a Linnaeus Grant by the Swedish Research Council for research on Ageing and Living Conditions, the council also awarded funds for establishing the Graduate School in Population Dynamics and Public Policy. The school opened in the Autumn term of 2007.

The programme includes approximately twenty postgraduate students from different departments and faculties, whose dissertation topics are tied to the programme’s field of knowledge. The students are recruited nationally, however, international students are also allowed to apply.

Postgraduates students who are offered a position in the programme must be enrolled at and receive funding from their home departments. Thus, the Graduate School in Population Dynamics and Public Policy serves as an umbrella organisation for interdisciplinary encounters – through seminars and workshops – and gives students access to both international networks and high-quality databases of relevance for their own research.
