Financial boost for scientific research

Sweden’s universities and research facilities will receive more money. The minister for higher education and research, Lars Leijonborg, announced on Thursday that the government will grant 650 million dollars for increased scientific research work over the next four years.

Leijonborg said that main elements of funding would go to the research fields of medicine, technology, and energy. He said that the amounts of funds granted would be determined by using an accomplishment gauge, measuring the scientific merits of individual facilities.
