The Key Actors Programme started with an invitation from Vinnova to the universities to perform a self-assessment and a peer-review of each university's knowledge transfer and commercialisation activities, according to guidelines provided by Vinnova. The results of the self-assessments and peer reviews were not required to be reported back to Vinnova, but were considered to be used by each university for its own strategic development and as the basis for applying to the programme´s first call.

In total 24 universities and university colleges responded positively to the offer.
This report is thus based on the universities own self-assessment reports and the peer review dialogues and reports.
