Abstract [en]

This chapter highlights important features of the Swedish university system in a historical perspective, with references to world-leading research and education. In focus is the distinction between university colleges and universities, and how this is related to education and research of high quality. The notion world-leading research and education is described as a particular challenge for Sweden, as country with a knowledge-based economy dependent on a global market. Sweden has the ambitions to achieve social justice and equal opportunities. There has been an emphasis on expanding higher education not only in terms of students, and also in terms of HEIs. It can be argued that there is a need to have a broad foundation to become world-leader in higher education, but at the same time, there exists a harsh competition about funding between HEIs. This tension will be at the core of future developments of higher education and research in Sweden.
