Founded in 1885 the Department of Geography and Regional Research (IfGR) is the oldest and largest geography department in Austria. It is home to more than 80 researchers and non-academic staff in eight working groups, as well as more than 3,000 students. Since its foundation, it has continously expanded into new fields for teaching and research within both human and pysical geography. This interdisciplinary basis in social and natural sciences provides a dynamic and inspiring environment for researchers to address critical societal challenges of our generation.
