Forte’s fields of research include important societal issues from both a Swedish and international perspective. This is why we collaborate with organisations in many other countries. Together, we issue joint calls for proposals and launch international research initiatives.

Promotes Swedish research in the international arena

Forte works in several ways to promote research worldwide. We want Sweden to be an active player in European research policy, and are working continuously to improve the research infrastructure in our three areas of responsibility: health, working life and welfare. We do this through collaboration with other research funding bodies in Sweden and through targeted initiatives with organisations in other countries.

The aims of Forte’s international work is to:

  • stimulate Swedish participation in European and international research collaboration
  • Increase the utilisation of European and international research funding to enhance national funding for research, and to
  • work to enable increased mobility for researchers
