Research within the field of competition policy, along with research into issues concerned with public procurement and State subsidies, helps to improve knowledge of the effects of competition.
The Swedish Competition Authority (Konkurrensverket), together with the Council for Research Issues, works to stimulate research within competition and public procurement and to contribute towards the qualitative and quantitative development of research in this area. For this reason we provide funding for research projects, commissioned research, seminars and the like.
In 2020, the Swedish Competition Authority did not carry out any announcement of research funding.
However, we will, as usual, carry out an announcement for research funding for 2021 and applications must be received no later than 1 February 2021.
