Science and communication for the Baltic Sea

The Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre consists of a unique combination of experts and communicators who collaborate with a wide network of marine scientists to improve knowledge about the Baltic Sea and help society handle its marine environmental problems. We are a link between science and management, and synthesise and distribute scientific results to the right audience in society.

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

Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre:

  • carry out vital research and environmental analysis to support management
  • collect useful knowledge and communicate it to the right place in society
  • strengthen and highlight marine research and education at the entire university
  • provide infrastructure for marine research and education
