What We Do

The secretariat’s work is research driven with a focus on Swedish, Nordic and international collaboration.

Our overarching purpose is to contribute towards knowledge development that encourages sustainable conditions for research, education and working life. The secretariat’s researchers and investigators conduct research reviews, investigations and analyses and identify knowledge gaps and research needs. We communicate the results of our work and contribute knowledge, expert support and process support in our specialist fields. Arranging and participating in seminars, dialogues, networking and conferences are also a part of what we do. Themes that the secretariat is currently prioritising include sexual harassment in educational and work environments, demographic challenges and the working life of tomorrow, the sustainable development goals connected to the 2030 Agenda, and hate and threats targeting researchers.
