Sweden as a big science nation

Internationally successful research is dependent on advanced research facilities. Today, Sweden has its own research infrastructures such as ESS, and MAX IV outside Lund and SciLifeLab in the Stockholm region. In addition, there are a large number of international research facilities around the world that Sweden participates in and finances. As a small country, we need to take advantage of that.

Att Sverige continues to be a country that prioritizes research and innovation is crucial for our competitiveness and continued development. As a small country, we need to prioritize funding, coordination, development and use of the large-scale research infrastructure and its ecosystem. Research infrastructure contributes great value to society and business.

In order for Sweden to get the full value of these investments, measures are needed in several areas. Above all, we need to engage supplier and user groups and make it easier for them to use and come into contact with research facilities in Sweden and internationally.
