Research overview 2019
Natural and engineering sciences
Trends, impact and challenges
The Swedish Research Council’s research overview within natural and engineering sciences describes the current position of research and makes a forecast of developments over the next five to ten years. The overview also includes scientific and research policy recommendations for inputs to promote research in Sweden within the area.
This is one of seven research overviews in total, produced during 2018. The other overviews cover the areas of humanities and social sciences, clinical therapy research, artistic research, medicine and health, educational sciences and development research. The overviews form a central part of the Swedish Research Council’s input into the upcoming Government Research Bill.
