2021 marks the start of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable development to support efforts to reverse the cycle of decline in ocean health. In addition the global policy agendas are packed with discussions and negotiations on climate, biodiversity and ecosystem restoration – not least in the coming COP-meetings this fall and in the spring of 2022. The awareness of the oceans’ role in these issues is increasing, thanks to advances in science and outreach efforts by the research community. On this year’s Baltic Sea Day we will continue to high-light Stockholm University’s ongoing research on the Baltic Sea, in relation to these questions as well as other scientific fields.

 

Registration opens 22 September

Programme and abstracts will be presented 22 September, when the registration for this event opens. We have a limited number of seats for guests attending the conference at the university and will also broadcast this event for our online audience.

At Stockholm University researchers have studied the Baltic Sea and its challenges in diverse disciplines for more than six decades. The majority focus on scientific issues that are important for a better understanding and management of the Baltic Sea and its catchment area, and several research fields are considered world leading. The Baltic Sea Day highlights frontier science on our unique sea by showcasing this broad set of expertise at the university. Organisers of the conference is the multi-disciplinary research network Baltic Sea Fellows
