At the initiative of the SOF Steering Committee, a research retreat was held to bring researchers from KI Dental Medicine together with researchers and actors from public (Folktandvården AB) and private (Praktikertjänst AB) dentistry in Stockholm.

The aim was to lift odontological research, strengthen collaborations and increase competence for national and international funding. Professor Mats Ulfendahl gave the keynote lecture on “What makes a successful grant application”. Presentations were also provided by KI Research Support Office, Centre for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics and Dental Medicine Economy Unit. Professor Anders Gustafsson chaired a panel discussion on “The future of dental research”.
