Björn Dahlberg was a professor at the Department of Mathematics, the University of Gothenburg. At his untimely death in 1998, he was 48 years old. Professor Dahlberg was an internationally recognised mathematician and leading in his field. The aim of the Dahlberg Fund is to hold his intellectual heritage in trust and to honour him as an exceptional mathematician and individual. A guiding principle, entirely in the spirit of Björn Dahlberg, is to overcome the distance between pure science and relevant applications, for the benefit of both.

The Dahlberg Fund at the Department of Mathematics, Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, aims at supporting and encouraging mathematical activity. Individuals and organisations in the region can apply for support from the fund, for projects within the above mentioned area. The responsible and the head of division decide if applications will be approved, considering the purpose and quality of the application and the available resources of the fund.

By supporting fundamental and applied research of high quality, the fund contributes to the strengthening research and industry in the region and in Sweden. The fund shall focus on individuals and support young, promising mathematicians. Björn Dahlberg was through his personality and competence an individual who energetically took up new challenges and crossed boundaries. The fund wants to create opportunities for people who, like Björn, are able to break new ground.
