Alpine Research Station Furka (ALPFOR)       

Alpine Research Station Furka (ALPFOR)
Three buildings of this former military camp 'Furkablick' (built in 1917, canton Uri, 2430 m a.s.l., 46 34' 36" N, 8 25' 17" E) became a center of scientific research and education in high mountains in 2009. The station is run by ALPFOR (Alpine Research Station Furka), a non-profit organisation associated with the University of Basel in cooperation with the 'Korporation Ursern' (regional authority) and the Arma Suisse.
ALPFOR offers ideal conditions for scientists, students and naturalists to understand and explre the alpine environment. ALPFOR also serves as a meeting place for international mountain research (courses, conference projects).
