Welcome to BioEnv!

At BioEnv we give courses and programs and conduct research within areas dealing with the world around us. Biology is the the study of life, that is all living organisms and the processes that control them, whereas environmental sciences focus on the interplay between humans and nature.
You find us in the Natrium building at "Medicinareberget" (close to the Sahlgrenska Hospital) in Gothenburg as well as at Kristineberg Marine Research Station in Fiskebäckskil.

About our educations

We offer courses and programs at both graduate and undergraduate level, in mainly biology and environmental science
