Organizing universities

Come and meet expertise from three Swedish universities with excellent e-Science research!

e-Science has already transformed our society. Computers, networks and software are omnipresent in our daily lives. With the help of modern information and communication technology we are not only advancing science but also developing new industrial processes, modern materials and better medicines.

eSSENCE is a strategic collaborative research programme in e-Science between three Swedish universities with a strong tradition of excellent e-Science research: Uppsala University, Lund University and Umeå University. It originated from a governmental initiative to promote high-quality research in areas of strategic societal and industrial importance.

eSSENCE research focuses on four main areas: Materials Science, Human Function and Environment, Life Science and Generic e-Science Methods and Tools.
