The idea to create an independent foundation that would work to make medical research a higher national priority came from Hans Bergström.

He was inspired by Research!America and wished for a similar force in Sweden. Anna Nilsson Vindefjärd (founder and secretary general of Research!Sweden) agreed about the need for a “Research!Sweden” and turned the idea into reality, in collaboration with other committed individuals.

Research!Sweden was formally founded in September 2010 by a high-level group of individuals from all parts of society: politics, business, universities, healthcare, culture and patient advocacy.
