Evaluation of Swedish biodiversity research

Research on biological diversity was awarded special grants by the Swedish government in 2001 which were to be managed by the Swedish Research Council and the Swedish Research Council Formas. The research councils appointed two committees in 2010 with the task of evaluating the biological diversity initiatives of the councils in terms of research quality and strategic direction as well as the relevance­ of the research. This report summarises the analyses and results­ of the two committees.
