Europe-wide human biomonitoring
In this research project, methods were developed to more efficiently measure how chemical substances are absorbed by and act in the human body. The results are presented in a dashboard throughout…
Potato cultivation under different environmental conditions
Due to climate change, potatoes are increasingly exposed to heat, drought and flooding. In the ADAPT project, we are investigating the potato's responses to stress factors.
Wireworm monitoring in potato
To control wireworms, surveying the time of flight and egg laying is critical. We have tested new trap systems to better determine this timing.
Risk Barometer Health and Environment
We have been surveying the risk perception of the Austrian population since 2017. The 2022 survey focused on health, the environment, climate change and nutrition.
