The LPP Foundation is a consultancy dedicated to promote scientific research within the fields of marine and terrestrial palynology, organic and inorganic geochemistry and limnology. The LPP Foundation has a long history in translating academic skills and expertise that developed in-house over the past decades, to top-level, confidential consultancy in a wide range of fields. Our core activities in academia and consultancy range from Paleozoic - Mesozoic - Cenozoic biostratigraphy, chemo-stratigraphy, organic and inorganic geochemistry, (paleo-) environmental change, sedimentary facies and systems tract reconstructions, fresh-water quality assessments and nature restoration, (paleo-) vegetation analyses, geo-archaeology and forensic environmental traces. Alongside our consultancy activities, we provide individual in-company, as well as open-access training in dinoflagellate taxonomy, biostratigraphy and paleoecology.
