Abstract [en]

It is often claimed that research has become more important for many areas of policy-making. However, most studies about the relationship between policy and research are focused on the central level of government. In recent years research policy at lower levels of government has become more important in many countries. In, for example, Sweden, many local governments are developing research policies to meet new demands and expectations. This development raises several interesting research questions about the relationship between policy-making and research at the local level of government: How are these policies constructed in the specific institutional context of local self-governance? What political functions do these policies play for how the role of municipalities is changing? How are the municipalities handling the relationship with the scientific community? In this paper I will analyze these questions through a study of the establishment of a research funding organization by the municipality of Norrköping in Sweden.
