Johannes is involved in two large research programs. 1) "Vetenskap och beprövad erfarenhet" or "Science and Proven experience", (funded by RJ, 2015-2021) focuses on a Swedish concept and phenomenon of considerable legal importance. The program concerns the integration of scientific evidence and proven experience that the Swedish concept implies. 2) The Linnaeus programme "LUCID" (funded by Formas, 2008-2018) (similarly) studies the integration of social and natural dimensions of sustainability.

Johannes' research in both programmes concerns central concepts, philosophy of science, evidence-formation, decision-making, and philosophy of risk.
