Review Panels


While the board of directors of Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) adopts resolutions regarding research grants, the applications received are assessed and prioritised in one or more of RJ’s review panels.

Each such review panel includes a number of members and alternate members of the board of directors, as well as Swedish and international researchers.

The preparatory process takes place in two stages. An initial examination results in a number of applications being selected for further examination in a second assessment, where the applications are reviewed by external experts from Sweden and abroad.
