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.
"We already collaborate extensively in environmental research, but now we’re creating a unique niche in the Swedish research landscape. It will be an interdisciplinary setting with close collaboration, more or less in neighbouring rooms, between science and laboratory research, social sciences and the humanities. The new organisation offers excellent opportunities to make international impact," says Professor Björn-Ola Linnér.
