Vetenskapsrådet head resigns

Mille Millnert is stepping down as the general director of the Swedish Research Council Vetenskapsrådet on 1 December, due to health problems.

Millnert has led Vetenskapsrådet since December 2010, and the Swedish ministry of education is working on finding a replacement.

“Vetenskapsrådet needs a leader who is consistently present and driven, and I am unable to fulfil this role in the upcoming period,” Millnert said in a statement announcing his decision to step down. “I need time to focus on getting well.”
