The evaluation of the SRA's

The Strategic Research Areas (SRA) was launched in the Swedish Government Bill on Research Policy in 2008. There it was stated that investments would be made in a number of strategic areas where Swedish research was of the highest international standard or was assessed to have the potential to be so. BECC is one of these SRA's and on April 30th the evaluation was sent out.

Evaluation statement BECC

For BECC's part the evaluation was very positive and the short evaluation statement about BECC is:

  • Performance: Excellent/good
  • Strategy: Excellent/good
  • Added value: Good

“This is an SRA which focus on the effects of climate change on natural resources, ecosystem services and biodiversity that utilises genuine collaboration between LU (78%) and University of Gothenburg (22%). The number and quality of their publications is impressive, with a high percentage of their papers in the top 10% and top 1% most cited papers in the World of Science. These papers address the needs of society in Sweden and internationally. The SRA funding has been used to create a common research environment that can contribute to important research questions. The SRA has a board that supports their development by ensuring a strategic allocation of the funding. There is also a stakeholder panel which oversees and guide the research programme and a communication office that has helped facilitate the translation of the science for the public.

There are excellent networks establishedwith agriculturalists and foresters, science and technology in the industry, government policymakers and relevant international bodies. There is a good integration of the research with education at Masters, PhD and Post-doctoral levels and a joint graduate training programme. The programme is well organized with a strong strategy and solid management framework and infrastructure for effective development.”
