Infrastructure group

The Department of Biology infrastructure group (BIG) has the overall responsibility to coordinate and develop the department’s infrastructure. The group advises the head of the department and the Biology Department Board and does not make binding decisions.

Here infrastructure means resources in the form of instruments and premises used for specific research purposes, often by several research groups, that require special resources such as staff and/or operating funds to be used in an efficient and reliable manner. This includes what is used by the first-cycle courses and study programmes.

BIG’s remit does currently not include the biology library (which has its own reference group), IT/computer/web helpdesk and the biological museums.

The applications that are annually submitted to the Faculty of Science’s infrastructure group are referred for consultation to BIG, which then delivers a comprehensive statement proposal from the department. On behalf of the faculty, BIG also keeps an inventory of heavy equipment.
