University of Helsinki is the largest multi-disciplinary centre for Baltic Sea research in Finland. University's research station in Tvärminne in Hanko studies the effects of eutrophication and climate change on the ecosystem of the Baltic Sea. The role of basic research is vital in this work.
We also collaborate with the University of Stockholm. Our strategic partnership Baltic Bridge gives this collaboration a formal status and facilitates the forming of new links between researchers, development of joint course activities and potentially also development of infrastructure.
The latest major research funding initiative from the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation will enable Finnish and Swedish climate and marine researchers to bring together their expertise and infrastructure. The funding will help to establish a new research centre CoastClim - bringing marine and climate researchers together for more accurate climate models. The aim is to find out more about ocean–atmosphere interaction and its effects on the climate. CoastClim is based on the strategic research cooperation Baltic Bridge between the University of Helsinki and Stockholm University.
