International evaluation of inorganic chemistry, 2008

Twenty-nine scientists and their research supported by the Swedish Research Council (at eight universities) in the field of Inorganic Chemistry are reviewed by an international expert panel. Each review in this report includes an evaluation of the research and recommendations based on the work accomplished over the past five years (2003–07) and the proposed future research.

The expert panel also expresses its international viewpoints on the status of Inorganic Chemistry research in Sweden, the strengths of the research topic and how to enhance its level and internal coherence.
In addition, the panel advises on the balance of research supported by the Swedish Research Council within the various subdisciplines of Inorganic Chemistry. Finally, the panel makes some additional recommendations on research funding to scientists in Sweden, and gives advice on the balance among the various fields of Chemistry.
