On 25 June 2018, Research Institutes of Sweden Holding AB was dissolved through a merger with RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB. In short, this means that all assets and debts have been transferred to RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB and that the Government Offices of Sweden is now the sole owner of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB. RISE Research Institutes of Sweden Holding AB has thereby ceased to exist as a legal entity.
