Sundsvalls tågstation

TRAIN is a research and research-education network in media and communication studies and closely related subjects, e.g., journalism and media history. It was started in 2010 by the media departments from the universities of Karlstad, Malmö, Södertörn, and Örebro, but today the universities of Gothenburg, Lund, Stockholm, Uppsala, Sundsvall/Östersund and Umeå are also members of the network.

One of two focus activities is a yearly spring symposium where PhD-students present their work and are given feedback from senior researchers and other PhD-students. TRAIN is also organizing and offering two core PhD courses in Media and Communication Studies on Studies on a regular basis.
