From Royal Academy of Science to Reserach Institute of Society - long term policy convergence of Swedish Knowledge intermediaries

Thomas Kaiserfeld ()

Abstract: In this paper, the formation of intermediary organizations of knowledge transfer in Sweden during the Cold War will be described and analysed. Here, intermediary organizations of knowledge transfer are defined as organizations aiming to transfer knowledge between knowledge producers and potential knowledge users (knowledge intermediaries for short). In theory, such organizations supply a platform for interaction between economic and academic life with problem-solving potential as well as development capability for the former and research opportunities for the latter.
