The CCES data platform for environmental research becomes the long-term WSL Envidat/OSPER infrastructure
A follow-up workshop, co-organized by the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) and CCES, analyzed the science-policy interface on November 6, 2015 at ETH Zurich. Key results can be found in the workshop's synthesis. More Information
The overall strategic goals of the Competence Center Environment and Sustainability of the ETH Domain (CCES) are to foster major advancements in research; to establish the CCES partners as international and national focal points for environment and sustainability; to achieve a long-term structuring effect lasting beyond the completion of CCES; to establish a strong wide-ranging education and outreach program; to achieve a visible societal impact with a focus on socio-economic implementation.
The CCES implementation is based on
A. Research areas and research platform Swiss Experiment
B. Education and Dialog
CCES is largely based on the long-range re-orientation and focusing of the critical mass and excellence in science and engineering already existing at the partner institutions. Activities follow a three-part scheme, with contributions from the ETH Board, dedicated resources by participating institutions, and third-party funding.
