The collection and generation of Alpine-wide spatial information have been the focus of interest at the Institute for many years. These data are used to analyze developments in the Alpine region and build the basis for many projects. Initially, the focus was on the three sustainability pillars (environment, society, and economy). Still, map bases are increasingly being generated, illustrating the current state or changes in ecosystem services, the consequences of land-use and climate change, and the 17 UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) with a special focus on the goals 11 - 15.

Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol) with researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields who come from all over the globe. Together, through scientific knowledge and research, they share the goal of shaping the future.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
