The vision for Cykelcentrum – the Swedish Cycling Research Centre – is “Research and education in collaboration, for increased and safe cycling”. Accordingly, we collaborate within our existing networks and we have also started a new network for doctoral students and their supervisors from all across Sweden.
We arrange internal webinars for the network three to four times a year, where the doctoral students get to present their projects to each other and/or invited researchers present their ongoing or completed projects. We also have a Teams platform where they all can share information about events, published articles or reports, and we help to distribute the information.
We also promote the supervisors and their research, in order to facilitate and increase collaboration across disciplins.
Both our webinars and the communication on our platform are in English, since several of the doctoral students have a foreign background.
