Centre for Social Research SOCRU

The Department of Social Research founded the Centre for Social Research (SOCRU) in August 2009.

The Department of Social Research started in January 2009 and was formed as the result of co-operation between social anthropology, social psychology, social policy, sociology and women’s studies. The Department is the largest and has the widest scope among the departments of social research in Finland.

Two thirds of the personnel of the Department work with external research funding. In its personnel strategy from April 2009 the Department regards strengthening the position of researchers as one of its most important areas to be developed.

By founding the Centre for Social Research the Department aims at more long-term organizing of research inside the department and at increasing the flexibility of research careers, the specialization of researchers and teachers and a more professional preparation of research projects. With improved management of research work the aim is to better map out funding alternatives – both national and international – and to accumulate know-how about application processes. The Centre also offers opportunities to develop researcher training.
