Research

Mistra invests in research aimed at solving key environmental problems and promoting Sweden’s future competitiveness. Mistra’s research programmes are conducted in a close dialogue with companies, public agencies and other users, to ensure that research findings are put to practical use.  

Mistra invites Swedish research groups to submit programme proposals on the theme of sustainable development in the Arctic Regions. The purpose of the programme is twofold: to expand knowledge of the region’s distinctive prospects of long-term sustainable development, and to contribute to adequate and effective application of research results in policy processes relating to development in the Arctic.

The Swedish research community has major potential to play a prominent part in this development, but existing research and educational environments need to be coordinated and new collaborative structures created.
