EMBRC offers a range of on-site and remote services to support basic and applied marine biology and ecology research. These services are offered by marine stations and institutes in EMBRC's member countries

We provide marine biology services to all interested parties including academic institutions, private sector stakeholders (SMEs, large industry actors), and policymakers in Europe and internationally. All service requests are evaluated for eligibility, feasibility and ethics. 

We can provide services on demand or be a project partner tasked with solving a particular technical issue. For more information on how our services can be incorporated into collaborative projects, or any other questions, please contact our Access Officer.
