Contemporary research and networking top scientists
Nowadays, climate change is the subject of numerous scientific studies, and due to their impact on the environment and living conditions on Earth, they are gaining more and more public attention, the centre’s head, Associate Professor Ivana Herceg Bulic underlined.
“Due to the extreme complexity of the Earth’s climate system and the many complex processes and interactions, a multidisciplinary approach to study is necessary. That is why the Faculty of Science, which brings together scientists from various fields of science and mathematics, has exceptional strength and competencies for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary scientific research,” said Herceg Bulic.
She believes that with that approach the centre will achieve quality scientific results and gain new knowledge about the vulnerability of natural and urban environments to climate change.
