Forum for Community Engagement

We build bridges between the university and schools/preschools.

This is FoSam

FoSam (Forum för Skolsamverkan) is an arena for regional collaboration between Uppsala University and eight municipalities: Enköping, Heby, Håbo, Knivsta, Sigtuna, Tierp, Uppsala and Östhammar. The operations initiate/support/propel mutually enriching collaborative projects, primarily in research and with a focus on professional development and operational improvement in the field of preschools/schools.

The goal is to contribute to increased goal attainment in preschools/schools, as well as improved quality and relevance of research and teacher education at Uppsala University. 

FoSam is jointly funded by Uppsala University through the Faculty of Educational Sciences and the member municipalities. 

An important part of FoSam’s work is communication and the dissemination of the results of collaborative projects where development initiatives take place via digital collaboration arenas, including a university-wide website for school collaborations.

For more information, contact Lars Olsson, manager of FoSam.

The page of FoSam is mainly in swedish.
