Organization and leadership

ARC is a division at the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS) at Karolinska Institutet and is organized in three sectors: medicine, psychology and social gerontology.

ARC is led by an executive group. The executive group implements decisions taken by the ARC internal board, which is led by ARC’s Director and Head of Division, and consists of senior representatives from each sector and three junior research representatives. The members of the internal ARC board share responsibility for scientific, organizational, and financial issues, including those related to staff, external contractors, and changes in administrative staff.

In addition, each sector has research group leaders that are responsible for the members in their research groups.

ARC has an external steering group with members selected by Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University. The external steering group supports and fosters the activity at ARC. It has an advisory role in budget issues and the overall planning of major ARC activities. This group meets at least twice a year.
