At IRI THESys, the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems, scientists from humanities, social and natural sciences collaborate to solve interdisciplinary research questions related to the societal challenges of transforming human-environment systems.
IRI THESys member Andreas Thiel is researching the transformation of water and marine governance from an agricultural and institutional economics’ point of view: Which rules define how we deal with water? Who lays down those rules? Who enforces and effectuates them? And how are these issues currently changing in Europe?
Promoting young researchers is a priority task of IRI THESys, and its education concept is designed to support all the way through research careers, from secondary school students, bachelor and master students, doctoral and postdoctoral researchers to research group leaders.
