VA (Public & Science) undertook a study together with the popular science magazine Forskning & Framsteg on behalf of The Swedish Research Council in 2019. The purpose was to investigate how research and science can be made more accessible in Sweden, both to the general public and to other target groups outside of academia.
The work involved mapping and interviewing actors that produce, fund, communicate or use research in Sweden. The results were presented in the report ‘Research Foresight’ (Forskning.framsyn), which also includes descriptions of around 20 communication initiatives in other European countries.
