Rekommendationer 1) Åtgärder Ansvarig Tidsram

1 Before initiating research

cooperation with a country, Sarec

should produce a comprehensive

country report, describing all

relevant facts for organising the

science support

2 Projects should be demand

driven as much as possible.

3 Sarec should work in close

collaboration with national research

organisations in partner countries

and involve them as much as

possible in programmes

4 Clearly defined anticipated

results and impacts and plan for

project/programme evaluations

from the start, including important

milestones. Be prepared to

redefine or terminate projects if

results fall short of expactions or

preconditions change

5 Sarec should consider the option

of supporting projetcs that are

morte integrated with local industry.

Most R&D activities in Sweden are

performed by private entities and

there is a need tio stimulate R &D

in non.public entities in developing


6 Sarecs policy on research

cooperation should be developed

into a science and technology


Agree. This is stated as a

prerequisite in analysing project

proposal in Sidas method manual,

Sida at work. Sida may also

engage in limited research

cooperation programmes in

countries with established

research, in which cases no

comprenehsive research overview

will be prepared

policy and approach.

Agree. This is stated as a

prerequisite in assessing and

preparing project proposal and

project agreements in Sidas

method manual, Sida at work.

No specific action

In countries where the advanced

knowledge system is extremely

undeveloped, Sida will continue to

support efforts to develop a basis

for research, focussing on the

creation of at least one research

university.In countries where

there is a basis for research as

well as a merging industrial

sector, Sida will make efforts to

link research with private sector


Sidas policy for research

Cooperation involves sciences as

well as social sciences. The

current policy is being thouroghly

debated during 2000. A revised

version will be submitted for

adoption to the Sida Research

Board during 2001

Rekommendationer 1) Åtgärder Ansvarig Tidsram

7 Sarec should consider itself as

an agency acting as financer,

partner, broker and adviser in the

area of research cooperation,

irrespective of the source of

funding of the research

8 Sarec should put greater

empasis on educational acitiviteis,

and not see them as a different

part of the foreign assistance


9 Sarec should be more active

when it comes to publicising and

requesting research cooperation

Agree. This is in line with current

policy, which should guide

support to research activities

irrespective of financing source.

Sida actively supports the efforts

made by universities and

research institutions to negotiate

support for astrategic plan,

thereby coordinating external

support from different sources

No specific action.

Sida supports the development of

research and research

universities. Such support is being

negotiated with a view to

contribute to university

development at large. It is

complimentary to support for

higher education as coordinated

by the respective institutions(see

p 7)

No specific action.

Agree. When Sidas Homepage

and Intranet is fully developed,

the prerequisites for publicising

documentations in the field of

research, and other fields, will be

greatly enhanced.

No specific action
