LNU Researchers Hylander and Lundgren published in seminal international work on salination

Salt pollution caused mainly by road deicing salts has been shown to seriously damage the ecosystems of freshwater lakes, and current governmental water quality guidelines around this issue do not adequately protect these lakes.

“Leveraging the results from a network of experiments conducted across North America and Europe, we showed that salt pollution triggers a massive loss of important zooplankton taxa, which led to increased phytoplankton biomass at many study sites.”

LNU Researchers Samuel Hylander and Maria Lundgren co-authored this seminal article, published last week in PNAS.

Interreg South Baltic

KM Vatten researcher Per Servais and colleagues have just been awarded funding through the seed funding projects of Interreg South Baltic. Diigi-PRENEURS – for innovative internationalization of SME´s in the blue and green sectors in the South Baltic Area.

“The nucleus for a DIGI-PRENEUR project is the business model innovation and the digital transformation that many business organizations have experienced during the recent pandemics. Developing digital sustainable international business models (DIBM) based on the added value by information technology, incorporating export marketing (entry modes, market communication etc.) and branding will achieve a significant influence on developing SMEs as DIGI-PRENEURS in the future in the SBA.”
