“We can only control the impact of our actions on nature and develop new strategies in climate research when we are well aware of the environment’s current state and of ongoing developments. The Technical University of Vienna’s research focus on energy and the environment pursues an interdisciplinary approach and complements its high technological proficiency with scientific expertise in the areas of climate, environment, resources, and economics. It is this expertise in particular which we contribute to the network as CCCA members, especially in the areas of earth observation, environmental analytics, and natural hazard management.”
