Professor Jürgen Enders has been appointed as an expert member to a review panel of the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte), the Swedish Research Council Formas, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) and the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet, VR).

These four Swedish research funders have announced joint funding for a research programme entitled “Long-Term Provision of Knowledge: Swedish Research and Higher Education in an International Context”. The funders have identified a shortage of independent, systematic information about how Swedish society provides itself with knowledge. This shortage concerns basic research, policy-relevant research and comparative studies alike. Research will be funded on the universities’ higher education and research and also on the research that takes place in the business and public sectors.

Expert members are appointed as international researchers of high academic repute with a recognised interest in research questions that cross traditional subject boundaries.

Professor Jürgen Enders commented:

This prestigious appointment contributes to the further development of our international research networks at the School of Management in Bath.
