SSEESS becomes ISSC Associate Member

We’re delighted to announce that The Swedish Secretariat for Environmental Earth System Sciences (SSEESS) has become an Associate Member of the ISSC.

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, with the aim of increasing the participation of Swedish researchers in international organisations and research programmes dealing with Global Environmental Change (GEC) issues.

In 2014, SSEESS financially supported two Swedish social scientists awarded within the ISSC Transformations to Sustainability programme. We are pleased to welcome SSEESS to the community of ISSC members and look forward to close collaboration with SSEESS to advance the social sciences for solving major global challenges associated with environmental change.
