Communicating scientific results to the right place in society

Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre works to make marine research visible, synthetize research results, and forward useful knowledge to decision makers, management authorities as well as the society in general.

Results from our research projects are published in scientific journals continuously. We also produce various reports, articles and digital information targeting different audiences. In addition, we organize meetings and conferences to illuminate important marine issues, where for example scientists with common interests can meet and collaborate.

We hope this homepage can be a useful starting point for all who wish to learn more about marine science that is carried out at the Stockholm University. It also contains information about marine education and other activities linked to the Baltic Sea, such as marine environmental monitoring and the use of research facilities.

Get in touch with our communications unit to learn more about our mission. We can help get you in touch with the right researchers and experts at Stockholm University, point you to a relevant research project, and inform about current events in all areas related to the marine environment and or the Baltic Sea.
