The Centre for Health Crises and the Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Health (CESH) are pleased to once again welcome participants to a policy lab. Policy lab is a forum for discussion and joint learning about how science and policy meet! Since this policy lab is about the governmental decision-making process in Sweden, with examples from a Swedish Government Official Report, it will be held in Swedish.

Please note that this event is held in Swedish!



  • Short presentation of the organisers, the participants and the forum of a policy lab. 

Panel discussion on the path from investigation to product, with examples from the Swedish Government Official Report on research funding:

  • Investigations and other documents. How is a government inquiry conducted and formulated?
  • Handling/preparation in the Government Offices.
  • Political negotiations. What happens "behind the scenes"?
