More about the organizers:
The Swedish Society for Marine Sciences (SHF) works to promote cooperation between Swedish institutions and people who work on issues related to the marine environment. As part of this work, the Marine Research Days are held every year - a conference with the main purpose to promote the dissemination of Swedish research at a national and international level.
Umeå Marine Sciences Centre (UMF) is a dynamic hub for advanced marine research and innovation, particularly in subarctic, Arctic, and extreme environments. It is a unit at Umeå University with close links to the departments of ecology and environmental science, and the chemistry department. UMF is a dynamic environment for marine research, education, and communication, and conducts environmental monitoring as part of the Swedish environmental monitoring programme.
The EcoChange research programme is one of the government's strategic research areas, which focuses on issues relating to the marine environment and climate. The core activities of EcoChange take place at Umeå University and Linnaeus University, and the activities are characterized by extensive collaborations between a number of different universities. This provides unique opportunities to make comprehensive syntheses of the effects of climate change in the Baltic Sea.
