Swedish national polar research programmes – 2014 and beyond


This report contains both the Swedish and English version.

The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and the Swedish Research Council share the responsibility for national level planning of Swedish polar research. The government agencies have drawn up this roadmap to visualize the research projects selected to receive support for field work in the polar regions outside Sweden. The roadmap is published to invite and inspire potential partners – national and international – to cooperate with our agencies and Swedish scientists to better achieve important scientific goals.
