About the Erken Laboratory

The station has since 1940 served as a combined research station and study center for researchers and students at Uppsala University. The first years the activities was mainly located during the summer, but it has for the past twenty years developed so that activities take place throughout the year, such as winter course in Limnology and research programs that run throughout the year. Erken Laboratory has developed an extensive monitoring program for Lake Erken, which led to participation in several major EU projects focused on the effects of climate change and automatic monitoring of phytoplankton development in the lakes.
