Cecilia A. Edwall

I work as editor at UR (Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company). The TV programs I work with, UR Samtiden (Contemporary) are daily broadcasted talks, debates and lectures in the Swedish Knowledge Channel and on platforms on the Internet. With special university focus, we develop co-operation with Swedish universities and also distribute lectures produced by universities.

Earlier I was head of Digital Media / University TV at the University of Gothenburg where I initiated and led two national projects - one of them a weekly television magazine on Swedish research, produced in a collaboration between Swedish universities and public service. The TV series Land of Science was broadcasted in the Swedish Knowledge Channel 2004-2009.

I am a trained journalist and hold a bachelor’s degree in economy and communication. My goal is to, together with others, develop new ideas, co-operations and methods in order to disseminate research to the wider public.
