Welcome to the CCCA

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

“The Graz University of Technology makes a conscientious contribution to the sustainable development of society, economy, and the environment: We live our mission statement on many different levels and are thus proud to partake in the new national climate service initiative. The advantages of the cooperation are obvious: nature is far too complex for a disjointed approach to concrete questions. The new centre’s holistic, transdisciplinary approach makes it unique. The aim is to join forces in answering burning questions to everyone’s benefit. It is prominently water management and remote sensing which provide substantive contributions. When floods and landslides become routine, the significance of research is apparent: We develop scientific forecasting models from which we derive preventive measures and early warning systems.”
