As the coordinating body for the promotion of climate research in Austria, the CCCA pursues the following goals:

To strengthen Austrian climate research

  • Improving the coherence of climate research in Austria
  • Increasing the efficiency of climate research (networking, synergies)
  • Creating a culture of high-quality research
  • Increasing visibility of climate research and understanding of relevance
  • Facilitating cooperation with other relevant areas of research

Facilitate the education of a new generation of researchers and supporting knowledge transfer    

  • Facilitating the education of young scientists
  • Promotion of the Young Scientists working group

To support science transfer

  • networking workshops
  • newsletter
  • intelligible publications

To advise politics and society

  •  Provision of the scientific basis for climate policies on national,  EU and international levels
  •  Provision of target-group orientated education on questions of climate change for various actors in society

“Strategies of mitigation and adaptation which relate to the rapidly increasing impact of climate change form the basis for a sustainable development of our society. Climate research at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences runs as an interdisciplinary thread through nearly the entire university. As a CCCA member, we want to make use of this interface between research, politics, media, and the public to ensure a sustainable climate dialogue.”
