Sweden Rolls Out Researchers Database

    In a bid to strengthen the role of research in Sweden’s international development program, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency and Ministry of Foreign Affairs are building a database of researchers who can be tapped for direct consultation and peer reveiew processes, among others.

    Dubbed Researchers for Development Analysis, the database is open to all interested researchers engaged in any academic discipline or focus area. Researchers and research managers in the database will be considered for commissioned tasks and studies as well as evaluations by SIDA and the foreign ministry.

    Interested researchers can register and access the database online.
