Now, there is an opportunity to comment on the preliminary version of the overview for development research crafted by the Swedish Research Council’s Committee for Development Research. Comments should be submitted latest 12 October 2022.

“This is a great opportunity for organizations, universities and SweDev members to give their viewpoints and influence the future of development research.”

Fredrik Söderbaum, Chair of SweDev and Professor of Peace Development Research at the University of Gothenburg.

The Swedish Research Council’s Committee for Development Research supports research of the highest scientific quality within its area of research. The Committee has nine members who represent research areas of relevance to low-income countries and lower middle-income countries.

“The SweDev Executive Committee and the Vice-Chancellor of Uppsala University and the President of Karolinska Institutet have provided four concrete solutions on how to increase collaboration between researchers and decision-makers in development policymaking,” Fredrik Söderbaum added.
