General information:
Ladokkonsortiet is a consortium, made up of 37 Swedish universities and one government authority: the Student Aid Agency. In all, we cover 99,5 % of Swedish HE students! The consortium is governed by the AGM, (twice/yr), the Board and a CEO. We are an organization built on competence hired from member institutions. Ladok is designed for local databases, with local responsibility for student register and register quality. We provide member institutions with the tools, i.e. development and maintenance of the Ladok system. The economic turnover of consortium national activities amounts to 110 MSEK (ca. 11 MEUR) 2015. In principle, member fees alone finance us. We are midst in a 7-year project for total system renewal – migration completed by 2017. Then we will have a modern web-based application, operated as one common instance and the consortium will also host the new system.
