Read the report of the research infrastructure inquiry
The government inquiry on research infrastructure has presented its final report, which is now available.
[Updated 30 August with a link to an opinion piece in Ny Teknik.]
In May 2020, the Swedish government appointed Tobias Krantz, former minister for higher education and research and until recently head of education, research and innovation at the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, to lead an inquiry into the future development of research infrastructure at national level, focusing on organisation, governance and funding.
On 11 August 2021, Mr Krantz delivered his report, entitled “Stärkt fokus på framtidens forskningsinfrastruktur (Stronger focus on future research infrastructure)”, to the government.
