The field station on Askö is situated in the middle of a fairly untouched archipelago. The lab is well-equipped for laboratory research and courses, as well as 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 conference rooms, wireless internet, a library, well-equipped kitchens and study rooms. The staff will try to make sure all users get satisfied. As long as the Baltic marine environment is in focus, Askö wants to contribute!
