The future of Swedish research! Humanities and social sciences

Overview 2014 – Humanities and social sciences

The Swedish Research Council developed a series of overviews and analyses in 2014 which serve as the foundation for the Board’s summary conclusions and recommendations on research policy choices to promote Swedish research in the coming 5 to 10 years. This project is designated "The future of research” and will be summarised in a final report in the summer of 2015. As a whole, the material serves as the foundation in the documentation the Swedish Research Council is compiling for the government’s upcoming research bill in 2016.

The full report was published (in Swedish) in 2015.

Overviews have been put together for the following seven research domains:

  • humanities and social sciences
  • natural sciences and engineering sciences
  • medicine and health
  • educational sciences
  • artistic research
  • development research
  • research infrastructure
