STUNS organisation and operations
The Foundation for Collaboration between the Universities in Uppsala, Business, and the Public Sector – STUNS – was started in 1983 and has pursued operations in the Uppsala region since 1985. STUNS is a politically and organisationally independent foundation. STUNS’ mission is to develop collaboration between the universities in Uppsala, the business community, and public organisations. The purpose is to promote the economic growth and sustainable development of the region.
The STUNS Governing Board consists of leading representatives of the founders or their current counterparts. The Board normally meets four times per year, with the CEO of STUNS reporting. The second Board meeting, usually in May or June, is the Annual Meeting of the Foundation. Business at Board meetings is prepared by STUNS external Directorate. The external Directorate consists of one representative from each founder.
