The excellent biological, ecosystemic, environmental and mathematical research in Göttingen requires the establishment of a corresponding integrated Master and PhD Programme for Environmental Informatics - PEI programme from University of Göttingen, in environmental informatics, from which important innovative scientific impulses and contributions can be expected.


Environmental informatics is understood to be an integrated subject consisting of bio-, eco-and geoinformatics in addition to scientific computing. By using the tools of informatics in this subject, anyone can study or model objects, structures, regulatory networks, processes (signals, materials and information flows) at various scales and integration levels.


Under the umbrella of environmental informatics, the transfer of knowledge about biological, ecological and environmental systems and the system-orientated integration of such will be improved and promoted using modern methods and technology on the Programme for Environmental Informatics - PEI programme from University of Göttingen . 

This important integrative approach at the system level is effective due to the efficient academic and education-related measures set up with the establishment of the MSc and PhD programmes in environmental informatics and their embedment in GAUSS and in the research landscape Göttingen.
