The relation between academic research, funding systems and management

This doctoral research project (involving Ulrika Bjare and Nina Wormbs) focuses on experiences among researchers regarding the conduct of scientific work and how the governance of research affects these experiences. By combining macro- and micro-perspectives on the governance of research the project focuses on the effects of governance, funding and authority on the perceived opportunities for researchers to develop research. Specific attention will be given to the organizational setting in which research is conducted and perceived expectations from the surrounding society.
