Research from three perspectives
- Funding – how much money is spent on research and development?
- Personnel – what is the composition of research personnel?
- Research results – how big an impact does the research have?
Focus on the higher education sector
The Swedish Research Barometer describes the development of research and development (R&D) in Sweden compared with other countries. We first describe the overall Swedish research system, and how Sweden performs as a research nation compared with a selection of other countries. Thereafter we focus on research at Swedish higher education institutions.
Statistics from several sources
The Swedish Research Barometer 2017 gathers together statistics, primarily from Statistics Sweden, the Swedish Higher Education Authority, OECD and the databases e-CORDA and Web of Science. We also base it on our own up-to-date reports and analyses.
So far, we have produced the Swedish Research Barometer for the years 2016 and 2017. The next Research Barometer is planned for 2019, and we plan to publish it every two years thereafter.
