Research, communication and infrastructure

At Stockholm University, successful marine research and education has been conducted for over five decades. World leading research about the Baltic Sea, as well as high-level science about other marine areas such as the tropical seas and the artic regions, originates from Stockholm University.

Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre's mission is to strengthen and illuminate this significant marine activity that involves over ten different Departments at the University. We are a combination of experts and communicators who collaborate with a wide network of marine scientists to improve the knowledge about the Baltic Sea and help society handle its marine environmental problems.

Four keys to successful knowledge co-production

In a large international study, researchers from, among others, the Baltic Sea Centre have analyzed what is needed co-production of knowledge to be successful. "Knowledge co-production is a powerful working model that can give science completely new insights – if done in the right way", says Marie Löf.

Where does the carbon go - a meagre future for benthic fauna?

In order to understand carbon flows in the Baltic Sea, mechanistic models need to take benthic macrofauna into consideration. This is concluded in new studies from the Baltic Bridge initiative.
