The oldest university in Sweden

Uppsala University is a public research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and the Nordic countries still in operation.[1]

The university rose to significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with a large donation from King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation (regional corporations of students) system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.

The university has nine faculties distributed over three disciplinary domains: Humanities and Social Sciences, Medicine and Pharmacy, and Science and Technology. As of 2020, it had approximately 52,000 registered students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and 2,200 PhD students.[2]

“Inoculating" children against disinformation

In 2018, researchers at Uppsala University evaluated a method to “inoculate” young school students against propaganda and disinformation by placing them in the same position as the people who create disinformation. An important part of the research project is to investigate whether the game affects the children's trust in real news.[3]
