The SEI Research Forum took place on 24-25 January, 2012, in Stockholm, Sweden. Its goal was to provide an opportunity for SEI staff, especially those from the Stockholm Centre, to share recent research, and to facilitate internal communication, encourage peer feedback, stimulate learning, and establish new collaborations.

The Forum was developed with a scientific conference as a model, with a call for abstracts from staff across all four SEI research themes that generated 60 submissions. The abstracts were anonymised and reviewed internally by research theme leaders, and presenters for the Forum were chosen on the basis of quality, relevance and innovation. This booklet includes all 60 submissions, with links, when available, to related publications and online materials.
