Interdisciplinary Environmental Research Centre

Since 1765, the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg contributes to technological and scientific progress. The term "sustainability" was already coined here in the 18th Century (by Chief mining officer Hans-Carl von Carlowitz) and there have continually been individual professorships and working groups dedicated to meet the challenges of environmentally friendly development.

Today, expertise in science and technology, environmental economics and social sciences unite in the Interdisciplinary Environmental Research Centre (IÖZ) of TU Bergakademie Freiberg – to address problems and to help solve them and to contribute to avoiding emerging challenges. In an effort to introduce a broader range of experience and expertise, the Centre pools the environmental expertise within the university.

IÖZ — Bridging Education, Research and Business

Research is performed in the fields of Ecology and Geoecology (Earth System Science), Environmental Geochemistry and Environmental Microbiology, Environmental and Resource Management as well as Industrial Archaeology. Teaching and special courses as well as continuing education for interdisciplinary environment-focused fields of study are offered to our students and to practitioners. Together with IÖZ’s Association of Practice Partners (Verein der PraxisPartner des IÖZ e.V.), internships for students are provided and joint projects are carried out with regional small- and medium-size companies.
