How to make scientific research more transformative?

Forest Ecology and Management (FEM) Seminar March 22, at 14:30-15:30 in the FEM Fika room on the fourth floor in the SLU building.

This seminar will be a thematic seminar as part of the FEM Seminar Series Anniversary 2017 .  It is possible to follow the seminar also remotely via AdobeConnect:  

Speaker: Professor emeritus Gunnar Öquist, Department of Plant Physiology, Umeå University, Sweden  

In my talk I will as an introduction refer to some bibliometrics analyses comparing the publication impact of Swedish research with some other nations that perform at a higher level. I will then discuss how Swedish research can be strengthened and finally I will highlight requirements for making Swedish research more transformative in terms of new discoveries to open up for new, often unforeseen opportunities. In my talk I will also ask the question if the latest research bill to Riksdagen will be instrumental to strengthen the impact of Swedish research internationally.
