When it became clear that Stockholm University would continue to get funds also during 2015 corresponding to those received for the BEAM program in 2010-2014, the Faculty decided to prolong the BEAM program for one year.

Over 20 projects funded

The BEAM steering group funded 24 projects, in particular for getting publications out, and for short-term projects, including planning for new research in BEAM’s sphere of interest. The grants ranged from 50 to 400 kSEK, and averaged about 200 kSEK, or in total 4,67 MSEK.  

Recently the funded researchers were asked to summarize their work by answering three questions: 

  1. How would you describe your project in a few sentences?
  2. What are your most important results, and for whom are they particularly useful?
  3. How can it assist an ecosystem-based management of the marine environment?
