Doctoral programme grant within register-based research

The purpose of the grant for a national doctoral programme within register-based research is to strengthen the recruitment base and quality within research areas that use register-based data, and to create added scientific value by educating doctoral students in fundamental and ground-breaking methods that are relevant to interdisciplinary register-based research.

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.
