SEK 93m for Stockholm Resilience Centre

Mistra’s Board has now decided to continue funding the Stockholm Resilience Centre with up to SEK 93 million in the period 2014–18.

‘The Centre has exceeded expectations, establishing itself as a world leader in resilience research,’ says Mistra’s Executive Director Lars-Erik Liljelund.

During spring 2013, an international panel has been evaluating the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) on Mistra’s behalf. In all essentials, this evaluation panel found the Centre praiseworthy. Its assessment is that the SRC has even exceeded the original expectations and established itself as world-leading in resilience and sustainability research. The scientific publications are impressive in terms of quality and quantity alike. In its research, the SRC has made vital contributions to international policy processes.

‘The intention throughout has been to support the SRC over a 12-year period,’ Lars-Erik Liljelund says. ‘The evaluation shows that the Centre is highly successful, so naturally we want to maintain our commitment.’

The Stockholm Resilience Centre was set up in 2007 on Mistra’s initiative, as an interdisciplinary research centre at Stockholm University. The agreement then drawn up provided scope to extend the agreement for a second period, 2014–18, if the overall intentions of the initiative had been fulfilled. This is now the case.
