GeoLab – centralized lab facility at the Faculty of Geosciences

About Us

The GeoLab is one of the main laboratory facilities of the Faculty of Geosciences at Utrecht University.  Here, we host a large equipment pool to process and analyze (environmental) samples and to perform non-conventional experiments in different lab units.

Besides its fundamentality for conducting research projects, the GeoLab constitutes a place that promotes students and new generations of scientists, fosters (inter)national and interdisciplinary collaborations, embraces sustainable practices and is a think tank for new scientific procedures. We actively investigate and adopt more sustainable practices as also evidenced by LEAF certificates.

Our different lab units host specific laboratory equipment and know-how, which can be used separately or in combination in various research fields of our Faculty and beyond, in national and international networks.
