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. The international dimension is essential in Forte’s work to contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Promotes Swedish research in the international arena

Forte works in several ways to promote the opportunities of Swedish researchers to collaborate internationally. 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. Forte works actively to create synergies between national and international initiatives.

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
