Clinical research in Finland and Sweden

In 2008, the Swedish Research Council and the Academy of Finland initiated an evaluation of the status of clinical research in Sweden and Finland. The study was conducted in November 2008 – March 2009 by an international panel of senior clinical scientists.

The aim of the evaluation was primarily to obtain an objective expert opinion on the status of clinical research in both countries, and to reveal any current trends in the quantity and quality of clinical research in a global perspective. This report presents the results of the evaluation of clinical medical research carried out in Finland and Sweden. The report also includes proposals for future development of research in the field.
