Partners of the Research Focus

         
Institute for Interdisciplinary Mountain Research of the Austrian Academy of Sciences

The Institute for Interdisciplinary Mountain Research (IGF) at its headquarters in Innsbruck focuses on inter- and transdisciplinary mountain research (montology) in cooperation with international groups of scientists. It also includes GLORIA, the long-term global monitoring network in alpine areas. The institute is part of the Social Sciences Research Centre at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and maintains a cooperation with the Mountain Research Initiative, Bern.

 
  European Academy Bozen/Bolzano (EURAC)

The EURAC is an institute for applied research and further education, subdivided in nine institutes: Institute of Specialised Communication and Multilingualism, Institute for Studies on Federalism and Regionalism, Institute for Minority Rights, Institute for Alpine Environment, Institute for Regional Development, Institute for Renewable Energy, Institute for Public Management, Institute for Management and Tourism, Institute of Genetic Medicine.

The alpS centre for natural hazard management deals with the sustainable protection of the alpine economic and natural habitat. Together with the authorities, research institutions and partners from the business sector, a research team works on a trans-disciplinary level on current problems when dealing with natural hazards. AlpS researches the hazard potential of natural occurrences particularly from the point of view of global change and global warming and then develops systems, products and services to effectively counter these.

 
 
Alpine Research Centre Obergurgl

The Alpine Research Centre at the University Center Obergurgl combines a long tradition with highly dynamic and modern research activities. Natural, environmental, earth and climate, and sociological sciences, and settlement and economic history join forces for scenario development for our future.

The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies
Despite its enormous extent and significance, Neo-Latin literature, i.e. the Latin literature written from the Renaissance to the present day, is little studied and poorly represented in academic institutions. The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies (LBI) programmatically focuses on those aspects of Neo-Latin literature which can be understood as a dynamic element of early modern culture and which have made a significant contribution to the emergence of Europe as we know it today.
