Results of needs inventory
At the Swedish Research Council we have a model of prioritisation of research infrastructure that is based on a two-year cycle. In the first year, an inventory of needs of research infrastructure in Sweden is conducted with the purpose to identify new national research infrastructure needs. The outcome of the inventory is used as the basis for the Swedish Research Council’s targeted call for funding of research infrastructure of national interest; the call is held in the second year of the cycle.
During the inventory of needs we conducted in 2017–2018, just under 100 proposals were received from higher education institutions, public authorities with research responsibilities, funding bodies, and research groups.
All incoming proposals for research infrastructure were assessed in terms of scientific, strategic, and national value, as well as feasibility.
In this report we describe the thematic areas that were found to be of the highest scientific and strategic value.
The report is an appendix to the Swedish Research Council’s guide to infrastructure 2018.
