Acclimatisation to high altitudes is a requirement for anyone who seeks to explore the highest elevations on earth. However, if an accident occurs in the mountains, it’s always an emergency. Our research is dedicated to emergency medicine in alpine environments as well as high altitude medicine and physiology.

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.
