On May 7, 2022, Prof. Beeckman was officially inaugurated as a full professor of nursing science at Örebro University in Sweden. In his role, he will establish the Swedish Centre for Skin and Wound Research (SCENTR) and work strategically with the Faculty of Medicine and Health to develop and internationalise research. He will combine this post with his professorship at Ghent University. Synergy between the Skin Integrity Research Group (SKINT) in Belgium and SCENTR in Sweden will be high on the agenda in the coming years. The integration and application of technology in wound care and person-centred care will be at the core of the research of both research groups.
