Who we are

The Swedish Institute for Educational Research is a government agency with the sole objective to enable those who work in the Swedish school system to plan, carry out and evaluate teaching, on the basis of research-based methods and procedures. The objective of the Swedish Institute for Educational Research is ultimately to contribute to children’s and pupils’ development and learning.

To reach our objective we

  • produce research summaries, and
  • fund practice-based research on teaching and learning in preschools and schools.

To do this in the best possible way, we have an ongoing dialogue with those who work in the preschool and school system, the research community and other government agencies and organizations.
