The field station on Askö, is situated in the middle of a fairly un-touched archipelago. The lab is well-equipped for research and courses – both indoors and for field work.

It should be easy to conduct marine research, manage courses and arrange meetings on Askö. We provide a brackish water supply system, climate rooms, an experiment hall, laboratories, vessels and small boats. We can also offer fine conference rooms, wireless internet, a library, well-equipped kitchens and study rooms. The staff will try to make sure all users get what they need. As long as the Baltic marine environment is in focus, Askö would like to contribute!
