The Swedish Research Barometer 2019

The Swedish Research Barometer provides an overall description of the state of Swedish research and development (R&D) in international comparison. The emphasis is on research conducted within the Swedish higher education sector.


Swedish resarch and development from three perspectives

  • Funding – how much money is spent on research and development?
  • Personnel – what is the composition of the research personnel?
  • Research results – how big an impact does the research have?

Statistics from several sources

The Swedish Research Barometer gathers together statistics from Statistics Sweden, the Swedish Higher Education Authority, OECD and the EU Commission (e-CORDA), and the publication database Web of Science. In this way, the report provides an overall description of the Swedish R&D system.

We publish the Research Barometer every second year

So far, we have produced the Swedish Research Barometer for the years 2016 and 2017. The next Research Barometer is planned for 2021.
