Summary of key aims

The Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research (FAS) is a government body under the authority of the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. FAS started its activities in 2001 after a merger of two research councils. FAS mission is to promote and support basic and applied social research, support coooperation among researchers and to provide information about research within three broad areas: working life, public health and social welfare. FAS supports projects, programmes (6 yr support to established research groups) and research positions. Projects are the main form of support.
Ageing is a sub-theme of FAS broad area Public health and elderly care is a sub-theme of the broad area Social welfare. Support for research on ageing and the elderly make up about 5% of new funds approved yearly on average.
The board of FAS is made up 14 researchers elected by the universities. Five members (community representatives) and the chair are appointed by the government. All board members are also members of the three committees reviewing applications.
Decisions on funding projects are taken in two steps. First an outline submitted in February each yr and then a full application submitted 4 months later by those whose outline was approved. Full applications are sent for review to at least one external reviewer. FAS has a special responsibility for national co-ordination of ageing research.
