Centre of Gender Excellence
In 2006, the Swedish Research Council granted 20 million SEK to establish a Centre of Gender Excellence (GEXcel), at the inter-university Institute of Thematic Gender Studies, Linköping University & Örebro University for the period 2007-2011. Linköping University has added 5 million SEK as matching funds, while Örebro University has added 3 million SEK as matching funds. GEXcel is created as a temporary (5 year), collegium-like excellence centre for Advanced Gender Studies. A core activity of GEXcel is a Visiting Fellowship Programme organized and defined by a number of thematical foci.
The National Secretariat for Gender Research has organized a series of studies of Swedish gender studies education. In a recently published report within this series, gender studies alumni have responded to survey questions and participated in focus group interviews, to provide a picture of the connections between gender studies education, ways of perceiving the competencies specific to gender studies, and experiences from the working life that for many alumni have followed after their education.
