Description

The Environment Agency Austria (EAA) is the specialist institution of the Federal Government and provides expertise on the condition of the environment and environmental changes as well as on measures to avoid or reduce environmental pollution. It plays a key role in the implementation of federal environmental laws, EU directives and regulations, provides expert advice to federal and other institutions, designs and operates national environmental databases and is involved in several cooperation agreements with national and international institutions.

EAA internationalises the research programme provision on behalf of the Ministry for Science and Research (BMWF).
