COMMONS is a five-year initiative supported by the Swedish Research Council, with the aim of promoting cooperation in chemical research related to biomembrane and biomolecular interactions. Through the establishment of a research school, a guest professor program and more exchanges and collaborations with other universities, the center strives to create a dynamic and international research environment with carrying capacity that will attract young researchers and guest researchers from all over the world.
