The Swedish Research Council’s guide to research infrastructures 2014

The Swedish Research Council’s guide to research infrastructures is a guide for Sweden’s needs of national and international research infrastructures. It forms the basis for discussions on the financing of future infrastructure within the Swedish Research Council, but also in collaboration with other research funding nationally and internationally.

During 2014, the Swedish Research Council conducted a review of the processes of prioritization and funding of national research infrastructure. As a consequence, this fourth edition is limited with regard to proposals for new infrastructure. Instead, its main emphasis is on concentration and coordination of existing infrastructures and the clarification of roles and principles for future management of infrastructure.
