Through workshops, conferences, publications and web based information the aim of SweCult is to stimulate research, debate, networks and cooperation between researchers and organisations in the cultural sector, nationally as well as internationally. SweCult is responsible for updating the Swedish part of the Council of Europe’s Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends in Europe run by ERICarts (European Institute for Comparative Cultural Research). Activities are coordinated with Swedish research information centres already established, notably the Nordic Information Centre for Media and Communication Research (Nordicom) at Göteborg University and the Centre for Cultural Policy Research at the University College of Borås. Cooperative coordination is sought with national cultural sector agencies.
