Empowering citizens through research and innovation

Read more about research projects presented briefly at the Security Research Event 2023.

MSB, Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency

MSB supports applied, needs-oriented research in the field of societal security and civil defense. In order to stimulate research on civil contingencies the agency allocates approx. 100 million SEK annually to a variety of research activities, for example, funding for major research programmes, individual projects and support to various research centres.

Recently launched is a new research plan 2024-2028. It describes ten knowledge areas clustered into three major areas; Civil preparedness, Emergency management and Secure digitalization.
