About the document

Table of contents

Uppsala University has extensive activities, which it pursues both in Sweden and abroad. A crisis generally arises with little or no forewarning. An effective crisis response organisation is an important tool for managing crises and minimising their negative impact on the University’s activities, staff and students.

The purpose of these guidelines is to describe the structure, procedures and functioning of the crisis response organisation. The University’s crisis response organisation needs to have clearly defined structures, leadership and responsibilities, and to be staffed by trained employees who have the necessary preparedness and knowledge to support the University’s activities during a crisis.
