Jon Moen, professor at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science (EMG), has been appointed new programme leader for the Research & Leadership Program, ReaL. Moen replaces professor emeritus Petter Gustafson, who after many years of active engagement, now will end his mission and engagement in the ReaL-program.
Professor Jon Moen has been a leader in several major Mistra programs and other interdisciplinary research projects and does also have experience from other management assignments as head of department and chairman of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's environmental research council.
Jon Moen will initially work in the ReaL–program together with senior consultant Matts Björklund, Human Resources Office. He will adjust his engagement in relation to his ongoing appointment as Head of the Department for Department of Ecology and Environmental Science.
- I was very happy when I was asked to take responsibility for ReaL. I have always thought that leadership issues are both interesting and important for maintaining a high quality in research. It is also something that we do not get much training in during the early stages of our research career. I hope to be able to contribute with my experiences from both interdisciplinary contexts and as head of department, says Professor Jon Moen.
