The HCE’s "Heidelberg Bridge" Colloquium

The Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) helps to sustainably combine existing competences available at Heidelberg University in the area of environmental sciences and initiates new research projects. Going beyond the traditional boundaries of a specific subject or discipline, the HCE aims at providing academic solutions to existential challenges and ecological effects of natural, technological and societal changes on human beings. The “Heidelberg Bridge” colloquium is a lecture series that focuses on these issues and creates a platform for interdisciplinary exchange and communication with the public.
