Networking – Affiliated Projects and partners

We have now started a new projekt together with Lund University and researcher Björn Klatt. It is a program for increased mobility between academy and practice, financed by Formas. Björn will be part-time stationed at our office and we will work togethet in LIFE-Goodstream wetlands in the 2-year  project ”Wetland 2.0 – upgrading freshwater habitats for bees”. With Björn in the team we also get valuable knowledge and expertise on measures to increase the biodiversity of pollinators in LIFE-Goodstream and other projects we run. This collaboration starts in December 2019 and runs untill December 2021.



LIFE-Goodstream experiences and constructed measures are an important resource in our new LEVA-project, where we work with landowners in small drainage areas in Southern Halland and Northwest Skåne to decrease eutrophication. Our LEVA-project (LEVA-Kattegatts kustnära vatten) is financed by the SwAM and runs between 2019 – 2021. This is a very good project to network with and gives reciprocal advantages to both projects and many win-win situations.






We are involved in a FORMAS Project together with Professor Peter Hambäck et al. at Stockholm University, where we will use the LIFE-Goodstream wetlands to investigate how management affect biodiversity.

(this project is finished)

John Strand presented LIFE-Goodstream at the end Conference in Lund in September 2016.


The main objective is to improve the biodiversity performance of standards and labels within the food industry, by supporting standard organizations to include efficient biodiversity criteria into their schemes; and motivating food processing companies and retailers to include biodiversity criteria into their sourcing guidelines.
