The Swedish Research Barometer 2016

An overview of the Swedish research system in international comparison

The Swedish Research Council’s Research Barometer serves to illustrate the current state of Swedish research through some thirty indicators. Government agencies, companies and other organisations that fund and carry out research and development (R&D) are part of the R&D system.

The Research Barometer’s focus is on the public funding of research, and research performed at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), i.e. emphasis is on the research part of the R&D system. The Research Barometer describes three parts of the system: financing of R&D, human resources in the R&D system and the results that are generated in terms of scholarly publications.

The compilation of statistics derives from policy-relevant national and international data, presented in this way for the very first time.
