Final evaluation of Linnaeus grants

In 2019, the final evaluation of the Linnaeus grants will take place. Did the Linnaeus grants produce the desired effect? What have they meant for Swedish research?

The final evaluation of the Linnaeus grants will focus on the over-arching changes the funding was intended to achieve. These included changes to the system for research funding, and to the capacity of higher education institutions (HEIs) to develop and maintain strong research environments.

We start collecting data in autumn 2018

This autumn, we will start our collection of data ahead of the final evaluation 2019. Some of the data collection will be done in two stages – one for each call.

The information below is aimed at those who have been appointed as contact persons at higher education institutions that have received Linnaeus grants. The information has also been sent by email.

Respondent lists – names and email addresses

Please draw up respondent lists with the names and addresses of persons within the management, direction and research at the Linnaeus Centre during the programme period for the various calls. The instruction tells you how to fill in the respondent list. There is also a template with a suggestion for how such a list should be drawn up.

En strategisk satsning på starka forskningsmiljöer

A strategic investment in strong research environments The main purposes of the Linnaeus grants have been to create, reinforce, maintain and uphold internationally leading research environments, and to strengthen the ability of higher education institutions to make strategic prioritisations and to profile their research. The investment was also expected to result in structural effects on the research system, for example in the form of a mustering of strength and collaboration, and through effects on societal wellbeing and growth.

The Linnaeus grants were presented as a new grant format in the Swedish Government’s research policy bill, Research for a Better Life (Govt. Bill 2004/05:80).
