Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Theoretically speaking, you can file for aktindsigt (approx. "freedom of information request") with any publicly Swedish institution for any kind of documents that do not contain sensitive personal information (unless it's about yourself) or (reasonably narrowly defined) state secrets. That includes universities. And that includes source code and raw experimental data.

In practise, if there's a paper in the pipeline your request will be "unavoidably delayed" until the paper is published, or files will "go missing."

But after they've wrung the last publication out of a project, you should in principle be able to get to their code and data.
