VU and UvA now cooperating in AGCI

A big step forward for AGCI since the launch in June 2011 is the participation of colleagues from the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The UvA does much excellent and complementary research in environment, sustainability and global change.

The following UvA departments have joined AGCI:

Amsterdam Business School,
Amsterdam Centre for Environmental Law and Sustainability,
Department of Political Science,
Van 't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences.

AGCI provides an opportunity for greater cross-fertilization between research and researchers across the two universities. By creating a connected community of global change researchers in Amsterdam, we can also enhance our collective profile internationally, becoming more attractive to talented researchers and societal stakeholders in the future.


More than 250 researchers, covering the full spectrum of relevant disciplinary expertise, participate in AGCI. They represent the following departments and research groups from both VU University Amsterdam and University of Amsterdam:
