University of Gothenburg


The QoG Institute is an independent research institute within the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg. We are about 30 researchers. The QoG Institute is managed by a steering committee of 15 senior researchers, led by the director, which is a position held for three years on rolling schedule. We also have an administrative team consisting of a program manager and a program coordinator, who are in charge of our activities, and a principle investigator (PI) and two data managers, who are in charge of the QoG databases.
