Stenhuset

Promotion of research,  Culture and Humanities

The Sten A Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture was founded in 1996 in honor of shipowner Sten A Olsson on his 80th birthday. At that time, Mr. Olsson had been active for more than half a century in the Gothenburg and Western Sweden area, laying the foundation to what today is the Stena Sphere, one of Sweden’s largest family owned businesses.

The Sten A Olsson family has always had a great interest and will to support creative individuals as they strive to fulfill their goals. Through the Sten A Olsson foundation for Research and Culture, the family aims to target support and contributions to research and cultural activities mainly in the greater Gothenburg area and western parts of Sweden.

The aim of the foundation is to promote research and development (the research area) and all types of art and culture, humanistic sciences and Christian communions (the cultural area).

The foundation’s contributions and support are thus divided between the research and the cultural areas. Since the foundation aims to be beneficial to society at large, the cultural contributions are, because of Swedish legislation, in the form of educational and teaching awards or donations.
