Research facilities

BECC researchers are active in using research infrastructure, some of which is partly or fully financed by BECC.

Some examples of the research infrastructure that is available to our researchers are listed below.


DataGURU is a tool for researchers to disseminate and find data on climate, land use, biodiversity and related areas. It is easy to test hypothesis to see if there are correlations between a changing climate, and changes in biodiversity, populations etcetera. The tool is easy tool to use for those who do not normally work with climate data, and researchers within biology can greatly benefit from DataGURU.

ICOS Sweden 

ICOS Sweden is a national research infrastructure, operating stations for greenhouse gas measurements in Sweden.

MAX IV, Lund 

MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists with high-quality X-ray light for research in materials and life science. Lund University is the host university.
