Stockholm University intensifies the Baltic Sea research

In 2018, Stockholm University will start a new interdisciplinary Baltic Sea research network. About ten new research positions will strengthen the research at different departments of the University and form a interdisciplinary marine research team at  Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre.

This is a continuation of the Swedish Government's funding of strategic research areas (SFO) where Baltic Ecosystem Adaptive Management (BEAM) during 2010–2015 was one of Stockholm University's major research initiatives. After 2015, the University decided that the strategic funding should be used for further development of the marine research.

BEAM puff

Continuation of the BEAM-programme

The Baltic Ecosystem Adaptive Management, BEAM (2010-2015), was part of the Government's strategic research areas (SFO). While waiting for the final decision on wheather the strategic funds for Baltic Sea research should become a permanent part of Stockholm University’s government grant, 2016 will be a interimistic year.

SFO-funding for Baltic Sea research

Stockholm University intensifies the strategic Baltic Sea research. New researchers at various departments of the University will create a joint marine interdisciplinary research team at the Baltic Sea Centre. This initiative is a development of the governmental funding of strategic research areas (SFO).

Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre

The Baltic Sea Centre was established 2013, and has three main missions: research, science communication and to provide infrastructure for marine research. The Centre should also promote dialogue within the marine research community, and function as a strong voice for marine issues on behalf of the University as a whole.
