MISU's researchers collaborate scientifically with several centres and organisations both within and outside of Sweden. In addition, MISU handles the administration of "The International Meteorological Institute in Stockholm (IMI)" through which researchers from foreign countries can visit Sweden and work together with Swedish researchers.

The International Meteorological Institute in Stockholm (IMI) conducts research in meteorology and associated fields, and promotes international scientific co-operation within meteorology.

A central function of IMI is to provide opportunities for foreign scientists to work and interact in Sweden. IMI also publishes the scientific journals Tellus A and Tellus B.

MISU's collaborators

Below are descriptions of centra and authorities MISU collaborates with.

SeRC - the Swedish e-Science Research Centre

The Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC) is a strategic research environment involving four universities KTH, SU, KI and LiU. MISU scientists are funded by SeRC for projects where e-science developments aim to advance climate science. These include novel coupled atmosphere-ocean-sea ice coupled single-column models, Machine Learning to reduce the computational cost for radiation calculations and improving numerical and computational aspects for atmospheric LES.

The Bolin Centre for Climate Research was founded in 2006 by MISU and other institutions as a collaborative organisation for initially four, now seven, departments at Stockholm University and KTH and SMHI. The Bolin Centre contributes to the expanded use of climate models and offers education, research and intermediation activities.

SMHI - Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute

SMHI (the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute) is the single largest employer for our students after graduation and also an important research collaborator on both weather and climate. In education we collaborate with SMHI on a joint MSc-course on “Practical Meteorology” and several SMHI researchers are enlisted as PhD-students at MISU. Research collaboration include computer models for weather forecasting and climate studies or satellite observations.

Collaboration with The Baltic Sea Centre comprises undergraduate education, PhD student supervision and scientific research. The Baltic Sea Fellows network is in focus, a strategic effort by Stockholm University that brings scientists from eight different departments to a joint marine interdisciplinary research team at The Baltic Sea Centre, where Inga Koszalka represents MISU. She integrates field work with R/V Electra into the Master course Physical oceanography and leads a project on the Baltic Sea’s turbulent currents and algae blooms. More information at Inga Koszalka’s profile page.
