Forschungsverbund Umwelt und Klima


Climate change, biodiversity loss and environmental pollution are highly complex global challenges and require integrated and interdisciplinary collaboration. To meet these challenges, the "Environment and Climate Research Hub" (ECH) bridges faculties and centres, considering disciplinary anchoring and existing high-class track records, to promote excellent research in the field of environment and climate.

The ECH strengthens the reputation of the University of Vienna nationally and internationally, increases its attractiveness internationally as an employer and research site, supports the excellent education of the next generation, and promotes the internal cohesion of the University.
