The Björn Carlsons Östersjöstiftelse has established an annual prize for researchers or other individuals who have made a valuable contribution to protecting the Baltic Sea’s environment and ecology: the Björn Carlsons Östersjöpris. The prize money, initially set at SEK 3 million, will be awarded annually. The Björn Carlsons Östersjöpris is designed to increase interest in the Baltic Sea and inspire commitment to and continuation of existing efforts to ensure a healthier Baltic Sea.

The Foundation intends to distribute the first prize in the spring of 2022 and annually thereafter.

The prize winners will be appointed by the Foundation’s board following a proposal from a nomination committee consisting of prominent researchers from Sweden, Germany, Poland and Finland. The chairman of the nomination committee is Christina Rudén, Stockholm University.
