In 2020 the UNESCO Chair joins the Science_Link partnership with the Nockberge Biosphere Reserve (Carinthian part of the Salzburger Lungau & Kärntner Nockberge Biosphere Reserve).
The long-term cooperation between the biosphere reserve (BR), Carinthia University of Applied Sciences and Alpen-Adria-University Klagenfurt aims at (1) building a bridge between excellent international research and everyday life in the region of Nockberge, (2) stimulating, triggering and scientifically supervising technical, economical, ecological and social innovations in the region, (3) giving access to international developments and trends and the scientific community as well and (4) to raise public awareness for the importance and potentials of the BR.
In the course of the cooperation student works (bachelor, master, dissertations) are addressed to burning issues in the biosphere region. Relevant research questions are developed together with stakeholders from the region and implemented with technical and logistical support from the biosphere reserve management. The results are presented in the region and made accessible in meine biosphäre, the BR´s journal.
