Open forum | The merging of EkoKlim and the Bolin Centre

A New Bolin Centre You are very welcome to an open forum about the merging of EkoKlim and the Bolin Centre

The research environment EkoKlim at Stockholm University and the Bolin Centre for Climate for Climate Research have agreed to merge and form an extended centre for climate research. The centre will focus on extending and disseminating knowledge about the Earth’s natural climate system, climate variations, climate impacting processes, climate modelling, human impact on the climate and climate impacts on ecosystems, biodiversity and human conditions as well as how society can minimize negative impacts through responsible management.

The widened centre will keep the structure of the Bolin Centre, but extended with two new research areas probably focusing on landscape, biodiversity and social impacts. The Bolin Centre welcomes everyone interested in any aspect of climate related research and who are affiliated to, or work closely with, one of the Bolin Centre partners (Stockholm University, KTH and SMHI). The process of merging, names and specific focus of the new research areas and practical issues of how to join the centre will be presented at the open forum.
