What is EMBRC?

The European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC) is Europe’s ‘research infrastructure’ for marine biological resources. We provide access to marine resources, as well as cutting-edge services and facilities that allow researchers, from both academia and industry, to study the ocean and develop innovative solutions to tackle societal issues.

A new wellness center for Kalmar – KM Vatten gets involved

A meeting of the minds last week as members of Havsmiljöinstitutet, Kalmar Kommunand KM Vatten/Lnu, and Kunskapsporten, a Swedish building and development company, gathered together in Stormaren to discuss an exciting new project: A new wellness center for Kalmar. Set to be completed in 2025, this 15,000 square meter building will house a pool, spa and restaurants, and will be built north of Kalmar central. Why is KM Vatten getting involved? Kunskapsporten CEO Joakim Ollén has a vision to establish the entrance of Kunskapsporten as a free and permanent exhibition, dedicated to water research and education and for the public. KM Vatten researchers who are interested in outreach and development and would like to get involved should contact caliac@lnu.se . Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to tell the story of your research, reach a wide audience, and get involved!
