Minister for Higher Education and Research talks about IFN in speech


Tobias Krantz talked about IFN as an example of research that is free from outside influence at the Marcus Wallenberg Prize ceremony in late September: “It happened now and then that researchers at the Institute drew conclusions that did not square with what some entrepreneurs thought was appropriate. But when some board members proposed that these reports should be stopped, Wallenberg rejected this outright and recommended instead that those who wanted to censor the research resign from the board.”
