Avalon Institute of Applied Science
Since 1998, Osorno has developed a particularly close working relationship with the Avalon Institute of Applied Science Inc., a private research-oriented academic institution.
This working relationship led to the two organizations sharing office and laboratory space, and in 2012, the shareholders of the Avalon Institute agreed to a friendly take-over by Osorno. Since then, the Avalon Institute has formally become Osorno’s science division.
The Avalon Institute continues with research projects outside of Osorno’s business activities, particularly large-scale international projects. Currently, the Avalon Institute is working on “From the Caspian to Mediterranean: Environmental Change and Human Response during the Quaternary”, which will continue for several years.
