The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and Swedish Research Council have established a shared roadmap for support to research projects in polar regions outside Sweden.
The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat is a government agency that promotes and co-ordinates Swedish polar research. This includes to follow and plan research and development, as well as to organise and lead research expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic regions.
The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat has two research stations in Antarctica, Wasa and Svea, and the Abisko Scientific Research Station in northern Sweden. Read more about the research stations and vessels used for the Secretariat’s research expeditions.
