The theme for Aktum no 2 2019 is popular science. The cover features this issue´s profile, Maria Göransdotter, teacher and doctoral student at the Umeå Institute of Design.

Umeå University uses different ways of reaching out with its research. Some of the examples of where research is being presented in a popular science manner for interested participants of all shapes and sizes are the Scientific Lunches, Fika efter en forskare, the European Researcher´s Night, Forskning à la carte and Levande frågelådan. In spring 2020, Curiosum science centre opens its doors to provide inspiration to the public.

This issue of Aktum also contains an interesting read om the university´s AI investment and the new Language Policy. Readers are also invited into one of the most secret parts of the university.
