New unit at Thematic Studies: Environmental Change
Linköping University is pooling its resources in terms of environmental research at the Department of Thematic Studies. The Unit of Water and Environmental Studies and CSPR (Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research) are joining forces, to form the Unit of Environmental Change.
Linköping University is establishing a department of thematic studies focussed on environmental change and global challenges. The reorganisation recently decided by the University Board will see the new unit, Environmental Change, commence operations in August.
