Network for field research to become one of EU's major research infrastructures

The European network for field research, LTER Europe (Long Term Ecosystem Research), has been recognised as an important research infrastructure in the EU. LTER Europe includes LTER Sweden,

There are twenty Swedish research stations in the LTER network. The LTER stations conduct long-term environmental monitoring of biology and chemistry, as well as ecological and socio-ecological research. Among other things, they aim to stimulate research collaboration and the exchange of environmental data between researchers and organisations both in Sweden and in Europe.

One important outcome of LTER Europe's ESFRI application is a closer cooperation between LTER Sweden and SITES. Seven out of nine stations in SITES are included in LTER Sweden.

Through LTER Europe's entry into the EU Roadmap for Research Infrastructures the way enables for the network to become a formalised and permanently funded infrastructure for ecosystem and socio-ecological research and long-term environmental monitoring. However, it is a long build-up process and it is not until 2025 that the LTER/ESFRI infrastructure will be up and running at full scale.
