Den första utvärderingen av 2006 års Linnéstöd presenteras i en rapport senare i höst. Men redan nu kan du läsa utvärderingspanelens slutomdöme och rekommendation.
Här är listan, universitet för universitet:

Chalmers tekniska högskola

Linnaeus center on engineered quantum systemslänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster
9,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
Forskarskola 1,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"Linneqs is a medium sized centre, which has fully benefited from the Linnaeus grant and so far has produced some very significant results. Its organization is parsimonious and, to some of us, seems to have built upon a very particular model that Chalmers has pioneered. It is adaptable. It is flexible and, from the discussions we have had, it works.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the Linneqs at Chalmers be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."

Göteborgs universitet

LinCSlänk till annan webbplats – Lärande, samverkan och kommunikation med ny teknik i det moderna samhället
5,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.  

"The evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to the LinCS be maintained at the present level."

Karolinska Institutet

DBRMlänk till annan webbplats – A Strategic Research Center in Developmental Biology for Regenerative Medicine
9,72 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
Forskarskola – 1,15 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"DBRM occupies a very particular, prominent and internationally salient position amongst the leading research groups in the area of regenerative medicine. Though some groups have been recently formed, they are in synergistic relationship with others who have “fought their way to the top" over the past seven years or so. The centre has shown itself well positioned to draw in the best talent internationally available, able rapidly to act upon opportunities presented and to have clearly demonstrated – and that very soon after the centre´s creation – the very real benefits that synergy and the cross-fertilization of ideas and techniques have to offer.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the DBRM centre at the Karolinska Institutet be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."

STARGET länk till annan webbplats– a cancer research network for studies of the diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic potential of mesenchymal cells of the tumor stroma  
9,72 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"STARGET, from an organizational perspective, brings together a number of noteworthy features that appear to set its inner organization apart. It is unashamedly collegial both in the structures through which it is managed, in the way budgets are assigned as in the spirit that seems to pervade it. Maintaining a “loosely coupled" environment is a constant challenge if only for the fact that in such a setting contemporary notions of “leadership" are not always easily to be reconciled with what an earlier age once termed “scientific collectivism".

The main thrust of STARGET´s development appears, rightly in our view, to place special weight on building up its position inside the Karolinska Institutet.  That it should take this approach would seem, at one and the same time, to reflect its confidence in the very solid position its component research groups already enjoy in the international scientific community and in the commercial ties that follow from high repute, ties on which STARGET can – and most assuredly does – count.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to it be maintained at its present level."

Linköpings universitet

LILi-NFMlänk till annan webbplats – Linköpings Linnéinitiativ för nya funktionella material
8,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"LiLi-NFM has demonstrated without a doubt its ability to move quickly, with purpose and to integrate the resources of the Linnaeus grant into its overall strategy by investing in the renewal of its talent base at both senior and junior levels. This has had immediate consequences in allowing the centre to extend the number of its basic research divisions. The Linnaeus grant has enabled the centre to invest in its long term sustainability.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the LiLi-NFM centre be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."

Lunds universitet

CEDlänk till annan webbplats – Centrum för Ekonomisk Demografi
5,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
Forskarskola - 0,9 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"The Centre for Economic Demography is effectively the product of the opportunity the Linnaeus grant made possible to expand and to develop further an earlier environment, which had already “won its spurs". It has, with commendable speed, added new perspectives to those that had already laid down the ground work for path-breaking investigation. It commands excellent networks, both within Sweden and abroad. The Centre links in with the major research institutes active in this generic domain from theUSAto China.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to the Centre for Economic Demography´s be maintained at its present level."

Dissection of the genetic and metabolic complexity of diabetes and its complicationslänk till annan webbplats
10,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"The Lund University Diabetes Centre is in a high state of readiness. Its publications in the leading international journals are impressive. The prizes its members have garnered internationally, in the Nordic region and at home, eloquently attest as nothing else can do to the place it occupies at centre stage in its chosen fields of investigation. We do not believe that LUDC will be satisfied with these signs that excellence has been achieved. On the contrary, as is well known in folk proverbs, the taste for excellence, like appetite and eating, tends to stimulate the demand to further heights! We note that LUDC hopes to push forward with further recruitment to consolidate its strategic position. As in Dickens´ Oliver Twist, so with LUDC: it is a case of “Please, Sir, can I have some more.". What is called for is rather more substantial than just another helping of gruel! LUDC seeks four senior scientists with an international track record. Clearly, this is one of the conditions LUDC regards as necessary for excellence to be sustained.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that Lund University Diabetes Centre be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."

Hemato-Linnélänk till annan webbplats
5,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
Forskarskola – 1,15 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"Hemato-Linnaeus has moved quickly through its start up phase. It appears to us that it has already achieved a significant level of synergy and inter-group exchange, which is evidenced in its productivity. The environment draws on a complex organization of services including grant administration and management already in place. This has been instrumental in placing the Programme firmly on the path towards the vision it has set itself. The quest for excellence is markedly comprehensive. It takes the view that for excellence to be achieved requires that at the same time attention be paid to the long-range task of identifying and fostering talent, the better to attract it into the area of stem cell research, a task that sees an increasing engagement to educating and training, activities that the Linnaeus grant has served to underpin.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the Hemato-Linnaeus environment to be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."

Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Knowledge Creation:länk till annan webbplats Dynamics in Globalising Learning Economies
5,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"The evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to the environment Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Knowledge Creation: Dynamics in Globalising Learning Economies at Lund University to be maintained at the current level."
Panelens förslag: Oförändrat
 

Nanoscience and Quantum Engineeringlänk till annan webbplats
7,5 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
Forskarskola – 1,15 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"The Linnaeus environment for Nanosience and Quantum Engineering has moved quickly to translate the opportunity provided by the Linnaeus grant into operational action. The impact of the grant has been as important internally as it has been in the environment´s activities on the international front. Most significant of all, in our view, has been the fundamental shift in strategy from “risk avoidance" towards an evident self-confidence and spirit of resolve to project, follow up and, in the words of its original submission to the Swedish Research Council, to draw “... the technological road map of the new millennium [...] in the quantum control of nanostrcutured and atom-like device structures.".

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant the Linnaeus environment for Nanosience and Quantum Engineering be maintained at the current level."
Panelens förslag: Oförändrat

Neuronanoscience Research Centerlänk till annan webbplats
7,5 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"The Neuronano Research Centre is moving out of its start-up phase, which has concentrated mainly upon internal communication across and between its participant groups. This is yielding its fruits, both in the area of publications and in a heightened dynamic that, from what we have heard during our exchange with its leadership, can only be admired.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to the Neuronano Research Centre at Lund University be maintained at the current level."

Organizing Molecular Matterlänk till annan webbplats
7,5 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

To put matters bluntly, it is as if OMM were in that situation, well-known to aviators, of being “in a holding pattern."

The second aspect that we feel in all candidness is best brought out into the open, is the question of ‘value added´. In one respect, this is easily answered. The value OMM adds is to be found in the reinforced collaboration between its members. Yet, when this issue was broached, it was not evident to us of what the value added by OMM consisted, still less whether it was yet to be realized, whether that realization was about to come, was on the point of emerging or in what way it had been achieved already. We were, in short, at a loss to reach any conclusion as to how dynamic OMM was beyond the sum of its individual members.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that a decrease in the grant made to OMM should be considered."

Stockholms universitet

Bert Bolin Centerlänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönsterKlimatutveckling, klimatvariationer, och klimatets känslighet
10,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år (50% Formas + 50% VR)
Forskarskola – 2,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år (Formas)

"In terms of quantity, the climate oriented publications in the centre´s output over the past two years, is impressive. One suspects however, that the transition from coexistence to sustained close internal collaboration has yet to reap its full benefits.  But the level of direct collaboration between groups might, one suspects, be improved. The time to do so however is precisely what the Linnaeus grant has made available.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to Bert Bolin Centre be maintained at its present level."
Panelens förslag: Oförändrat
 

SULCISlänk till annan webbplatsIntegration or segregation? Immigrants and the labour market
6,65 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"SULCIS, we would suggest, stands firmly in multidisciplinarity and has yet to demonstrate clearly its readiness to move on to interdisciplinarity. It is then in a stage of coalescence that is transitional from one to the other. We expect, given the stability which the Linnaeus grant brings with it, that this transition will be amongst the major achievements SULCIS will be able to show when the grant expires.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to SULCIS be maintained at the present level."
Panelens förslag: Oförändrat

Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet, SLU

Insect Chemical Ecology, Ethology and Evolution, ICE3länk till annan webbplats
5,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år (Formas).

"In this very specific context, the Linnaeus grant would appear to have contributed to advancing two strategies with one grant. It has given greater expedition to the progress ICE3 set itself in its application. In turn, ICE3´s stimulation of its international ties appears to have had a multiplier effect in other clusters within SLU.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the ICE3 be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."

Umeå universitet

Ageing and Living Conditionslänk till annan webbplats
8,0 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
Forskarskola – 1,4 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.

"ALC is poised to become a nodal point in the strategically vital area of the study of ageing, a field of central concern to the future ofEurope . Ageing is a domain in which the full implications of cross- and multi-disciplinary research and collaboration have yet fully to be explored and mapped out. As we have noted, ALC stands in a somewhat different relationship with its internal partner departments in that many have yet to achieve the degree of creative synergy that their collaboration holds in store. Nevertheless, the way in which its strategy has been operationalized and is currently proceeding gives confidence that this condition shall be attained within the period the Linneaus grant will run.

On these grounds, the evaluation panel would wish to recommend that the grant made to the ALC  Programme at UmeåUniversity be maintained at the current level."
Panelens förslag: Oförändrat

Uppsala universitet

URRClänk till annan webbplats Strategic funding of Uppsala RNA research center
6,8 miljoner kr/år under 10 år.
 
"The Linnaeus grant has brought about a significant level of integration between small specialized research groups. URCC appears to us to be moving steadily towards realising the strategy it has set itself, whilst being alert to the opportunities for extending its collaboration to other cognate areas, which, as yet, have not been brought into its ambit. The future possibility of working with the Berzelius Chemistry Centre is one example. Its ambition has clearly been strengthened most substantially by recruitment of future leaders in the field. The result looks very promising.

On these grounds, the evaluation would wish to recommend that the Uppsala RNA Research Centre at the UppsalaUniversity be seriously considered for an increase in the grant made to it."
