We gather researchers, teachers and students in the area of environment and nature. We have a wide breadth of both research and education.
About 300 full-time students take one of our undergraduate programs or independent courses. Program studies at EMG are conducted in the areas of biology, geoscience and environmental and health protection, from basic to master's level. More than 40 senior researchers and their research groups conduct research with ecological, palaeolimnological or biogeochemical focus. We offer postgraduate studies in ecology, environmental science or natural geography.
The UN report on oceans and climate is based on long time data series. Umeå University contributes to these.

The BIOMEX research team, including Natuschka Lee, has made biological experiments under space conditions.
