Strategic Baltic Sea initative at Stockholm University

Stockholm University has decided to continue and intensify its strategic and interdisciplinary initiative on Baltic Sea research. The University's Baltic Sea Centre was assigned to administer this initiative during 2016. For this year more than 40 scientists in 20 projects was granted funding of 6,5 MSEK in total.

The five year research program (2010-2015); Baltic Ecosystem Adaptive Management (BEAM), 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.
