Contributes with knowledge and advice
The Council for Register Data supports the Swedish Research Council in the work of improving the prerequisites for researchers to use data from registers in their research.
For example, the Council has the mandate of
- supporting us in our work to develop principles and systems that improve access to registers for research by coordinating data
- contributing to long-term strategic activities that strengthen Swedish register-based research
- providing support to the work on harmonising metadata at Nordic, European and international levels.
