Long-Term Ecosystem Research in Europe

LTER Sweden

About LTER Sweden

LTER-Sweden was founded in June 2010, and adopted by LTER-Europe and ILTER in August 2010. LTER-Sweden is based on a number of established and running instrumented sites for ecological research and monitoring. The Swedish network is built on the bottom-up principle, where individual sites form the basis of the network, and a central secretariat coordinates national activities and contacts with the European and International mother LTER organisations. LTER-Sweden is governed by the member organisations through an annual meeting with one voting member per LTER site. A management board with members from a selection of the sites deals with strategic planning, grant applications and other managemenet issues. The central secretariat will run daily issues and be responsible for e.g. organising the annual meeting, maintaining the web site, updates and contacts with ILTER, LTER Europe, end users and stake holders.
