Joining forces for the sea

Climate change, pollution and other human-induced pressures affect seas worldwide. The Baltic Sea serves as a model for these changes. The two universities located at Turku, Southwest Finland – Åbo Akademi University and University of Turku – have strong, multidisciplinary research focusing on the Baltic sea and coastal regions surrounding it.

Marine and maritime research

University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University have joined forces in multidisciplinary marine and maritime research.  Thematic topics studied in both universities include marine and coastal environment, maritime economy and technology, law and governance, and culture and history.

The joint profiling area is built upon excellent research infrastructures in the coastal region of the SW Finland. Here, the unique archipelago environment, long settlement history, and diverse marine and maritime sectors are combined.
