Science communication

Science communication contributes to increasing understanding, trust, and engagement in research by the general public and decision-makers. It also contributes to making research processes more open and inclusive.

Communicate more!

The Swedish Research Council has a government mandate to coordinate science communication. We work with a long-term approach to ensure research benefits society, and encourage dialogue and collaboration between researchers and other societal actors.

There are many reasons why it is important to communicate research, including:

  • Communication of research results makes it possible for organisations, politicians, and people outside the research community to make science-informed decisions.
  • Active dialogue about research can inspire new generations to further study.
  • Researchers gain access to new perspectives and approaches.
  • The public has the right to access and learn about results of publicly funded research.
