Future choices for the Swedish research system

Knowledge, quality and integrity

In this report, the Swedish Research Council presents challenges and ways forward for the Swedish research system. The report is based on the report Direction to the Future Swedish Research System published in 2015, and is intended to constitute underlying documentation for the Swedish Research Council’s upcoming work and input into Sweden’s research policy, and for a broad discussion about the importance of research, and how it is best conducted and funded.

The report has been produced by a team representing all departments of the Swedish Research Council, in close collaboration with the Swedish Research Council’s director general, executive council, board, scientific councils, councils and committees.
