The Swedish Secretariat for Environmental Earth System Sciences (SSEESS) is a collaborative partnership between the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, FORTE, Formas, Vetenskapsrådet, and Sida. On behalf of the members of SSEESS Partnership, the Secretariat acts as a Swedish link to Global Environmental Change Research. SSEESS was active between 2010 and 2016.

Our mission

SSEESS aims to increase Sweden’s involvement in international research programmes, thereby improving Swedish and international Global Environmental Change (GEC) research.

We want to achieve this by the following three objectives:

Objective 1

To increase the participation of Swedish researchers in international GEC programmes

Objective 2

To increase the flow of information on GEC research programmes to national decision-makers and researchers

Objective 3

To improve the coordination among research funders in order to improve the use of GEC research
