Abstract [en]

In many countries, current research policy is dominated bymanagerialism and excellence, manifesting the aim of makinguniversities into national strategic assets in the globally competitiveknowledge economy. This article discusses these policy trends and theirmirror in recent developments in public funding for academic research,with special attention to Sweden. A review of the language in three con-secutive Swedish governmental research bills from the past 10 yearsshows a clear policy shift towards the promotion of excellence and stra-tegic priority on the level of higher education institutions. Reforms tothe funding system, especially the launch of specific strategic excellencefunding programmes, are introduced to put the policy in practice. Whilethe policy shift itself might be discursive, the changes to the fundingsystem clearly show a determination on behalf of the Swedish govern-ment to increase strategic profiling and the pursuit of excellence inresearch on behalf of universities.
