Joint research initiatives

Environmental sciences form the basis for a responsible approach to our planet Earth and its resources. Over the past decades, environmental challenges have become increasingly complex and multi-faceted due to the recognition of their diverse impacts on life on Earth, i.e. on the environment, societies and economies.

Our overall objective is to build networks between scientists representing environmental sciences at the University of Vienna and to stimulate joint research activities, based on excellent disciplinary research.
