The Board of Research at Karolinska Institutet has decided to establish a center for research in culture, cognition and health. Initiator of this new center formation is Fredrik Ullén, who will also become the scientific director of the center. To start with, research groups at KI and KTH will be linked to the center. The purpose is to promote joint research projects and funding, but also to work with education and dissemination of information in different forms on the topic of the “cultural brain”.
Fredrik Ullén participated both as pianist, performing Béla Bartók’s Piano Sonata, and discussant (on the theme variation) in this year’s Katrina Chamber Music Festival on Aug 5 in Mariehamn. More information about the festival can be found here!
On Jul 14 Fredrik Ullén was invited to be a member of the prestigious Academia Europaea, a European scientific academy of internationally leading scientists and scholars in the physical sciences and technology, biological sciences and medicine, mathematics, the letters and humanities, social and cognitive sciences, economics and the law.
