Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are engaging more and more Swedish actors – from government agencies and municipalities to companies and civil society.

SEI will conduct the study “Science for Agenda 2030: review of research needs and opportunities ahead” for the Swedish research council Formas. The study has several parts:
The study will be reported to Formas and all collaborating experts and scientists in June 2018. The overall aim is to provide a robust basis for a strategic discussion around the future role of scientific research for sustainable development.
