SweCris

An open database with Swedish research projects
We initiated and were project managers for the development of Sweden Science Net, an open database with information about ongoing academic research projects that makes it possible to search and analyse data. Today, the database is renamed SweCris and has been run by the Swedish Research Council since 2012. SweCris meets the universities need to easily review ongoing research and enables statistical analyses.

The aim of SweCris is to make information about ongoing research in Sweden available, to enable different forms of analyses and to facilitate for research funders to deliver data to recipient organizations.

In 2006, we initiated a project to create an open database with information about externally funded academic research projects, in collaboration with KTH, Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University. SSCi took the role of project managers, and during the development, another seven universities joined the project group. The database was named Sweden Science Net. Uppsala University took on the responsibility of coordination when the development phase of the project was finished. During 2012, the Swedish Research Council was comissioned by the government to be responsible for the development and management of the database which changed its name to SweCris. By the end of 2017, eleven research financiers were connected to SweCris, a database that meets the universities need to easily review ongoing research projects. 

Thanks to the database , it is possible to make statistical analyses and other studies of Swedish research. It makes it easy to find relevant researchers for potential collaborations and makes it easier for research funding providers to deliver data to recipient organizations. Today, SweCris is a well-established resource that creates value for Swedish universities as well as other parties interested in Swedish research.
