Centre receives continued funding from MISTRA

Will receive 93 million SEK between 2014-2018

Based on an independent, international evaluation of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Mistra, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research has decided to continue its core funding of the centre.

"The centre has exceeded our expectations and established itself as a world leading institution on resilience research", says Mistra director Lars-Erik Liljelund.

According to the evaluation, the centre has not only succeeded in producing scientific articles of high quality, but also established itself as an important reference point to international policy processes.

"We are extremely pleased that Mistra has decided to continue its core funding of the centre. The external evaluation shows that we have exceeded Mistra's expectations, and we are grateful for the confidence in building a transdisciplinary research centre on social-ecological resilience," says Johan Rockström, executive director at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.

Stockholm Resilience Centre was founded in 2007 after a call from Mistra to establish a "a large-scale, interdisciplinary and internationally competitive academic research centre addressing sustainable governance and management of linked ecological and social systems."

The funding was based on a 12-year Mistra grant where the final part would be given after an external mid-term evaluation.

"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."
