Abstract [en]

The purpose of the chapter is to compare the governmental steering of research in Finlandand Sweden. In both countries, policies emphasise the relevance and excellence of academicresearch. Examples include Finland’s establishment of SHOKs and Swedish initiative of havingstrategic research areas. However, the countries differ in their use of centralised and decentralisedpolicy instruments. The Finnish authorities have been more active in profiling the researchof individual universities.
