University of Innsbruck


The research centre HiMAT (History of Mining Activities in Tyrol and adjacent areas - impact on environment and human societies) was established at the University of Innsbruck in 2007 and emerged from a special research program (SFB) funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. The research program deals with the impact of mining on cultures and the environment in the Alpine region from the Neolithic to modern times. whereby the integration of young scientists is a particular concern. Within the framework of an interdisciplinary network with the participation of young scientists and international partners, the development phases of the mining industry in the central Alpine region are systematically investigated.
