Mission statement

Our mission is to contribute to the understanding of the functioning of a wide range of habitats, from the alpine cryosphere to tropical soils, from groundwater to wastewater, but also composts and anaerobic slurries. Much of our work is embedded in the University’s research center Environmental Research and Biotechnology. Top-notch basic and applied research and research-driven teaching of Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. students is the mission of our institute.
