The Archipelago Research Institute at Seili Island is a special unit in the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University of Turku. The Institute participates in multidisciplinary research of the Baltic Sea, with a special focus on the Archipelago Sea.

Additionally, the Institute offers research services and facilities for courses and seminars, mainly for universities. Its own research chiefly comprises projects studying the biological and geological condition of the Archipelago Sea. Most of the research at the Institute is done in co-operation with other departments of the university.

Archipelago Research Institute is a partner of the national node of the Finnish marine stations within FINMARI (coordinated by TZS) in the EMBRC-ESFRI process. Seili is also a member of the EuroMarine consortium.
