Membership of the Scientific Review Panel 2018

The Board of Directors of the Swedish Research Council for Sport Science appoints the Scientific Review Panel in consultation with the Swedish Research Council (VR).

The Scientific Review Panel of the Research Council for Sport Science is divided into three Scientific Review Groups, with the following interests: The humanities and social sciences, physiology, medicine and biomechanics and traumatology, orthopaedics and rehabilitation. Applications of a multidisciplinary nature may need to be evaluated by more than one Scientific Review Group.

Each Scientific Review Group consists of a Chairperson and three members.

The role of the Scientific Review Panel is to review the distribution of funding, make suggestions about its allocation and give its opinion on applications for project funding and new, salaried academic positions to the Board of Directors. It is the Board of Directors where decisions regarding the distribution of funds are taken.
