Steering committee

The CASE research centre consists of a steering committee with members from the Faculty of Law, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Social Sciences and Faculty of Engineering (LTH).

The steering committee is tasked with ensuring that CASE continues to develop and remains a strong, sustainable centre for research on ageing and supportive environments. The steering committee works in close collaboration with the user board. 

The CASE steering committee makes decisions to affiliate with additional research environments and researchers at Lund University. The Steering Committee is also responsible for the centre’s budget.
