Together with around 20 heads of Sweden’s higher education institutions, I’m currently visiting Smådalarö and attending SUHF’s annual conference for vice-chancellors. The conference schedule is intense and I will tell you more next week about the interesting discussions we have had. However, one thing I’d like to share today is the happy and important news that yesterday 17 August, SUHF appointed Marita Hilliges as new secretary general.
Marita Hilliges is professor of neuroscience and has served as vice-chancellor of Dalarna University since 2010. Her previous appointments include a position as pro-vice-chancellor at Halmstad University. Marita Hilliges has already been involved in the work of SUHF for several years; she served as vice chair 2011–2014 and has also headed several of the Association’s working groups.
Marita will commence her new post on 1 October and succeeds Anders Söderholm, who has been appointed new director-general of the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ).
