The Office for ALF supports, among other things, the national ALF steering committee and coordinates the Swedish Research Council’s assignments linked to ALF. ALF is an agreement between national government and seven regions that addresses medical education and training, clinical research and the development of health and medical care.

The Office for ALF provides administrative support to the national ALF steering committee and coordinates our evaluations of clinical research.

The Office also coordinates the contacts between the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and the Swedish Government Offices, as well as with the Swedish Research Council’s scientific councils, councils and committees in matters related to ALF.

The Office is located at the Swedish Research Council’s head office in Stockholm.
