Competence and technology platforms

Ideal working conditions: our research infrastructure

IGB offers excellent infrastructures to our scientists and external researchers, enabling them to achieve their research objectives. This infrastructure includes the globally unique LakeLab in Lake Stechlin, an ecohydrological field observatory and a 3D telemetry facility. The infrastructure at IGB also includes fish and invertebrates facilities as well as modern biogeochemistry, stable isotope, microbial and molecular laboratories. We pool all this expertise and infrastructure in competence and technology platforms (CTP). These CTP are integrated into international programmes, provide support to users from research and practice and thus form a nucleus for cooperation. 


The LakeLab in Lake Stechlin is a large experimental setup. Here, scientists are studying the effects of global environmental change on lakes.
