International evaluation of Swedish research in biomedical engineering

Over the years, Swedish researchers in biomedical engineering, together with leading clinicians have contributed several groundbreaking technologies that have successfully competed worldwide.

In order to ”diagnose” the status of Swedish biomedical engineering today, the three leading national research funding bodies, the Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and the Swedish Research Council have jointly arranged an international evaluation of Swedish research in the field from 1997 to 2005.

In this report a panel of prominent international experts present their findings along with their recommendations to keep Swedish research ”healthy” so as to stay at the forefront also in the years to come.
