Linnaeus environments allocated in 2006

In 2006, 20 research environments were allocated SEK 5-10 million annually for a maximum of ten years in the first call for so-called Linnaeus grants. The environments represent all research domains — medicine, natural and engineering sciences, and humanities and social sciences.

Immigration and integration, research on education and learning, nanoscience, demographic studies, materials research, stem cells, and climate research are the subjects of some of the research environments. Read more about the environments below.
