Conference highlighting research at Stockholm University 

Less than a kilometre away from campus, the coastline meets the Baltic Sea. This, geologically considered, very young sea is one of the largest brackish water areas in the world, with hydrological properties that makes it home to a small but completely unique set of habitats and species; many of them has undergone an extremely rapid evolution.

Connecting nine countries along the entire coastline, the Baltic Sea also has a long history as a centre for trade and maritime affairs, which have been, and to date still is, key factor for economic growth in the region. Thus, this sea is a closely interconnected part of our society. But it is no news that the Baltic Sea faces a wide range of pressures and challenges, as a consequence of the life styles of this densely populated area.

Expertise across a wide range of disciplines

At Stockholm University researchers have studied the Baltic Sea and its challenges in diverse disciplines and with different approaches, since the 1960’s. 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. During this day, we showcase the broad set of expertise at Stockholm University by having 24 of our colleagues explaining their recent research – ranging from source to sea.

We want the Baltic Sea Days to inspire you who work with marine research at Stockholm University, to stay updated on research news and perhaps even find colleagues at other departments and faculties with expertise that can be useful to broaden or complement your own research.

Warm welcome,

Baltic Sea Fellows & Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre
