Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC)

An international research centre on resilience and sustainability science

Since its launch in 2007, SRC has developed into a world-leading science centre for addressing the complex challenges facing humanity.

The centre is a joint initiative between Stockholm University and the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at The Royal Swedish Academy Sciences.

It is governed by a board with additional strategic advice provided by two separate advisory councils.

SRC’s vision is a thriving and resilient Biosphere that enables well-being for all.

Their mission is to:

  • advance the scientific understanding of the complex, dynamic interactions of people and nature in the Biosphere,
  • train the next generation of sustainability researchers and leaders, and
  • engage in collaborations with change agents.

The Global Resilience Partnership is hosted at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
