Neo operations

The group Neo operations oversees issues related to daily operations in Neo. This group will then coordinate the issues and delegate the task to the appropriate person, group or the property owner (Hemsö). Incidents related to work-safety should immediately be reported to right instance. The issue should at the same time also be reported to the Neo operations group so they can make sure the issues are solved ASAP

Chair: Johan Dethlefsen

House council

The house council sets the common rules for the building and decides how the facilities in Neo should be used. The group has an overall view on how the localities are used in Neo. This is important when a new research group arrives to Neo, when research groups need to move within Neo or expand within Neo. Important that the house council is notified when a research group wants to expand or if a group shrinks, so we can use the space in Neo in an efficient way to reduce costs for rent, work efficiently and increase collaborations. The Steering group has delegated the responsibilities and decision-making of these issues to the house council.

The group works closely together with the steering group and Neo operations as well as the work environment groups at all the departments. The group organises fire drills and safety rounds in Neo.
