About the Beijer Institute
The Beijer Institute is an international research institute under the auspices of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The Institute was established in 1977 and was reorganized in 1991 with a focus on ecological economics. Core funding is provided by the Kjell and Märta Beijer Foundation.
The Beijer Institute's major objective is to carry out research and stimulate cooperation between scientists, university departments, research centers and institutes to promote a deeper understanding of the interplay between ecological systems and social and economic development.
Cooperation efforts include collaborative research between economists and ecologists and related disciplines on fundamental and applied problems in relation to sustainability, as well as teaching and training on those issues nationally and internationally.
The Beijer Institute's major activities are international research programmes, synthesis workshops, a broad set of research projects, teaching and training programs, dissemination of results, the science-policy interface and collaborative communication.
Beijer Fellows are outstanding people who are connected to the Beijer Institute and its mission, participate in activities, and are happy to regognize their connection with the Beijer Institute in various ways.
