Linné on line Background
The project was initiated and financed by Telia Promotor in collaboration with Uppsala University. The project group consisted of the following persons: Lars Bohlin, Gunnar Eriksson, Lars Jonsson, Sven Kullander, Karin Martinsson and Ulla Myhrman, researchers in different disciplines from Uppsala University, together with Håkan Södergren and Mikael Lundgren from Telia Promotor.
The aim of the project was to present some glimpses from contemporary knowledge within a few research areas, mostly using, as a starting point, the contributions of Carl Linnaeus, in his role as researcher and teacher at Uppsala University. We also wanted to arouse the interest in ongoing activities at the university. In particular we turn to pupils and teachers of schools.
It is hoped that other research areas will also be included in the project, at a later time.
