National collaboration the way forward for successful science communication

A new report on science communication shows that there are good preconditions for further development of Swedish infrastructure for science communication. The aim is to reach out with evidence-based knowledge in society.

The journal Forskning & Framsteg and the association Vetenskap & Allmänhet were tasked by the Swedish Research Council to investigate who is producing, funding, communicating and using research in Sweden. They have also gathered together examples from other countries, such as Norway och Denmark, which both have well-developed infrastructure for science communication in various formats.

The result, which is presented in the report Forskning. framsyn, also shows that there is interest in collaboration to disseminate evidence-based knowledge in Sweden.

–The result strengthens our view that collaboration at national level between research producers and research funding bodies is important, and I am pleased that good preconditions for this exist. For this reason, the Swedish Research Council will continue its work to establish a Swedish initiative to reach out with evidence-based knowledge in society, says Sven Stafström, Director General of the Swedish Research Council.
