Lakes play a vital role in Switzerland, not only as diverse ecosystems, but also in terms of their economic and recreational importance. The “Naturforschende Gesellschaft Luzern” (NGL) established its hydrobiology laboratory on Lake Lucerne over 100 years ago with the purpose of promoting lake research and waterbody protection. Nowadays, at the same location, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) carries out research into the fields of ecology, biodiversity, pollution and the utilisation of lake resources. The Info Day provides an insight into current lake research, as well as venturing a forecast of major future developments.
