Despite the Corona Crises and its effect of lowering carbon emissions for a short time, the level of CO2 in the air just hit a 3 million year high. This is alarming news, which just proves the immense need for educated experts who might be able to turn this horrific trend around.

Because of the current situation, the first two summer modules will be held online, with the possibility of doing so for the time after that, if necessary. That enables our very international students to attend classes even if they are not able to travel to Vienna yet. Our expert lecturers will hold their presentations via videoconferencing tools.

Apart from classes we are offering networking events on a regular basis, so the students can get to know each other, the program team and the lecturers.

To get more information on the program attend our next online info session on the 16th of June at 06:00 pm (Registration Link below). During the session, the academic director and the program manager will present all the information concerning the program and application and will be able to answer any questions from participants.
