Marine research at Stockholm University

Stockholm University has a long tradition of marine research, especially focusing on the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea Centre was founded to strengthen and consolidate the major marine activities available here. We aim to improve the visibility of research and current projects, and make sure the results are spread to inform society.


Strategic marine environmental research funding

Since the formal end of the BEAM programme 2015, the funds for strategic Baltic research areas (SFO) are allocated to the Baltic Sea Centre. While waiting for a final decision on whether these grants will be permanent or not, 2016 has been an interimistic year.
