Highlights and Forecasts in Research
CHILD celebrates 10 years at Jönköping University.  But a lot can happen in just a year. Here we give you some snapshots of what took place in 2016.

In the year we had two new PhD's, three new associate professors, new funding and new projects, an arranged research conference, lots of travelling and collaboration with international partners. And of course the continuation of research projects started earlier.

The new funding during 2016 ended up at 8.1 million SEK. It came from FORSS, Futurum, MoGård, Forskningskommittén RÖL, Nyckelfonden, Barncancerfonden, Stiftelsen Sunnerdahls handikappfond, Forte and Vetenskapsrådet.
Peer-reviewed articles during the year: 80 (list of Publications in DIVA).

We are pleased with this year and since it is coming to an end we wish you all Happy Holidays and we'll be seeing each other again in 2017 - for more collaborative research!

Research Leader
