Future marine SFO-funds will be probably be allocated to the Baltic Sea Centre. While waiting for a final decision on whether these grants will be permanent or not, 2016 was an interimistic year. See the granted research projects for 2016.

For distributing the Baltic Sea Centre funds, both a Steering group and an Evaluation group will be formed, and based on their recommendations the director of the Baltic Sea Centre will decide how to use the funds.

Final decision on whether the marine strategic funds should become a permanent part of Stockholm University’s government grant, as recommended by an evaluation earlier this year, has been deferred to the Research Bill  (Forskningspropositionen) to be presented in autumn 2016.
