The Institute for Solar Physics is a national research infrastructure under the Swedish Research Council. It is managed as an independent institute associated with Stockholm University through its Department of Astronomy.
We operate the Swedish
1-meter Solar Telescope (SST) on La Palma, currently the most
highly resolving solar telescope in the world.

The 4-year EU Horizon 2020 project SOLARNET II aims at integrating
the major European infrastructures in the field of high-resolution
solar physics in preparation for the building of the 4-m class
European Slar Telescope. The proposal was recently favorably
evaluated and we now enter the negotiation stage.
