Research

Tjärnö Marine Laboratory offer good opportunities for researchers, for those working here all year around as well as those visiting during a shorter period. Both groups are important for Tjärnö Laboratory since they enrich each other, the former by giving continuity, acting as an attracting force for visiting researchers and contributing to renewal of the infrastructure. Visiting researchers contribute by bringing new knowledge, methods and ideas.

About 50 scientists are active at the Tjärnö Laboratory year round. The research spans from basic issues as understanding functions in the sea to more applied topics as coastal zone management, monitoring and aquaculture. Evolution and speciation, restoration of cold water coral reefs and development of Swedish macroalgae cultivation are examples of on-going projects.

Most of the researchers at Tjärnö Laboratory belong to the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Gothenburg. Researchers at other departments at the University of Gothenburg and other universities are also users of Tjärnö Laboratory. The proportion of researchers from abroad is high.

You can apply for funding from Sea and Society to cover costs for workshops where you gather a number of marine/maritime scientists in order to prepare transdisciplinary applications for funding from for example BONUS or Formas. Sea and Society will cover real costs for accommodation and food (not alcohol).

Within Kosterhavet National Park there are certain regulations.

The KVA Fund

University of Gothenburg has offered funding to support internationalization and scientific renewal at the Marine Infrastructure at the University of Gothenburg, e.g.Tjärnö Laboratory. The University of Gothenburg has handled applications, evaluation and allocation of funds.

There were 50 applications for 2020. The following 16 projects are approved by the KVA Fund 2020. Due to many applicants and limited funding, the accepted projects are awarded access to the infrastructure, meals and accommodation and travel funds for up to 10 000 SEK. No other costs are accepted.

When the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA in short form in Swedish) sold the real estate Kristineberg to Akademiska Hus, 30 million SEK was funded for support during approximately 10 years. This was the last call, and by the end of 2020 the KVA Fund ceases to exist.
