Research environment grant within register-based research

The purpose of the research environment grant within register-based research is to create added value through collaboration in larger groupings.

With this priority area within register-based research, the Swedish Research Council wishes to strengthen and develop interdisciplinary and intersectoral research that is based wholly or partly on micro-data, for example from public authority or quality registers, and that can be linked to data from other sources, such as researcher-generated data, biobank data or survey data. The Swedish Research Council rewards research of the highest scientific quality in national competition.
