Environmental Sciences

The careful use of our planet’s resources and the responsible stewardship of the environment form the basis for sustainable development. Environmental studies provide the scientific background for responsible decision-making by politicians and society. Emphasis is placed on how to protect the environment, how to restore ecosystems and how to manage life on Earth.

Research Networks

Research networks bring together researchers at the University of Vienna, particularly in socially relevant subject areas, to create critical mass, which can then be the starting point for applications for research platforms and third-party-funded projects.
