Research is critical for Sweden’s future as a knowledge nation. The expectations of research as a force of change in society are higher than ever.
The challenge is to create an internationally competitive climate.
Our own research needs to be at the forefront in a world where more and more countries, businesses, universities and researchers have this as a top priority.
The conditions for dynamic interactions between universities and the surrounding communities need to be improved. We need to emphasise the vitalising links to education. Only by working together towards common goals can Sweden secure its position as a successful knowledge nation.
