Five Science Centers across the country will receive grants from this, in total, 150 million SEK donation, which will be used for dome theatres. SEK 100 million will be allocated for visualization technology at the five centers, and SEK 50 million for pedagogical development and production of theater dome presentations at Visualization Center C, Linköping University.
