The Research Council of the University of Oulu supports the rectors in advancing scientific research and sustaining scientific discussion. The Research Council handles scientific conventions and evaluates the quality of research. The council discusses e.g., new scientific directions, doctoral training, recruitment, ethical principles of research and quality assurance of research. The chair of the organ is the Vice Rector of Research in the University of Oulu. The council also includes professors. The Research Council is an excellent place to network with the people in charge of research in the University of Oulu and influence the development of research activity in our University.
