Proactive initiatives


Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) actively works to stimulate the development of research in the humanities and the social sciences.

Since the 1970s, RJ has worked proactively by surveying research needs, initiating strategic analyses and bringing together theorists and practitioners for discussions on what knowledge is needed. This work used to be conducted in what we referred to as sector committees. 

Since 2016, proactive efforts have been revised and broadened. RJ currently works with expert groups, a wide network of contacts, conducting inventories, workshops, and external and internal analyses. Some of the results can be seen in the reports that RJ initiated and contributed to in 2016 and 2017.
