How to improve the Swedish Research Council’s work in clinical research
Currently, the Swedish Research Council has two committees for clinical research. At the Government’s request, we have now reviewed the committees and drawn up recommendations for how the work can be developed.
Two of the proposals from the Swedish Research Council are to close down the Committee for Clinical Studies, and to appoint a secretary general for clinical research.
The assignment also included analysing how the operation can be developed to improve the quality of clinical studies in Sweden, and to increase the number of company-funded studies in Sweden. The recommendations therefore also concern measures that can contribute to achieving the goals of the Government’s life science strategy..
