What we do
Our mission is to support and develop research activities in the field of polar and marine research with a focus on the qualification of students and junior scientists. Since its opening, the OSL has provided scientists, PhD students and undergraduates from more than forty German and Russian universities and research institutes with a platform for their joint research.
The OSL is based on 30 years of experience in planning and carrying out expeditions, working meetings and training young scientists. Curious? Then do not hesitate to contact us!
