Militärer övar verkanstålighet, flottan.

Commissioned research

A large part of the Swedish Defence University's research consists of commissioned research for the Swedish Armed Forces, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) and the Ministry of Defense and Justice.

The main part of our research on behalf of the Swedish Armed Forces is gathered in the areas of "military profession" and "war studies". Above all, the research contributes to building long-term operational capability in total defence and to meet known and identified threats as well as unknown developments.

We also carry out research, analysis support and training in crisis preparedness and total defence. The war in Ukraine and Sweden's application for NATO membership have resulted in several research, analysis and methodological support assignments, among other things linked to host nation support, NATO's structures and the demands these place on Sweden.
