The Swedish research system in international comparison
The Swedish Research Barometer provides a picture of the state of Swedish research through some thirty indicators. Focus is on public funding of research, and research carried out at universities and university colleges. The Swedish Research Barometer describes three parts of the research system: financial resources, the personnel in the system and the results that are generated in terms of publications. The compilation is based on national and international data, relevant to research policy, previously not presented in this form. Selected parts of the contents are also available on the Web (vr.se/forskningsbarometern2017). There, the reader can filter and visualise the data in interactive graphs.
This year’s Research Barometer is an update and further development of the first barometer, published in 2016. In the future, the Research Barometer will be published every second year; the next Research Barometer will be published in 2019.
