We support research
The Riksdag has allocated special funds to research on social security. Försäkringskassan therefore has a separate research function, and has established links with qualified representatives from universities and colleges.
Financial support is provided to research projects and research programmes at colleges and universities.
Försäkringskassan is also involved in various collaborative projects with other agencies and organisations.
Call for proposals for research funding
For 2017, Försäkringskassan is calling for proposals for research funding for projects in three social insurance areas – sickness absence and the administration and function of health insurance; disability and the administration and function of social insurance; and child and family benefits.
Research seminar in Umeå
The research seminar in Umeå is an annual meeting place for theorists and practitioners who are active in social insurance. The purpose is both to disseminate knowledge and stimulate new research, and to foster the exchange of experiences and establishment of new contacts between researchers and practitioners within the field.
