The Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) combines a wide range of environmental perspectives including natural sciences, social sciences and cultural studies. It focuses on humans’ physical and socio-cultural environments as well as the specific dynamics of these environments, and also on how these dynamics interact with each other. In recent history, the intensity of this interaction has strongly increased in many areas, which challenges us to take a comprehensive approach in examining and integrating various academic perspectives into our research. 

 

Funding for water research networks: Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg provides four million euros for projects with participation of HCE members

Two inter- and transdisciplinary water research networks, in which scientists from the Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) of Heidelberg University are involved, belong to the three winners of the call for "Research networks" within the program „Water Research Baden-Württemberg“. The projects will work on the risk assessment of chemicals in the aquatic environment and the study of droughts in Europe. The networks build strong links between the natural and engineering sciences and the social sciences and will be funded during the next five years with two million euros each. [More…] (Ger)

 

Interdisciplinary and integrative cooperation

The complexity and cultural dependence of modern environmental problems goes beyond the analytical framework of any one single method or discipline. For this reason, the HCE employs a model of interdisciplinary and integrative cooperation. Heidelberg University is renowned, also at the international level, as a place where this overall view of the environment is developed and integrated into teaching methods and public discourse on the issue.
