Abstract

In 2002, Austrian climatologists founded the research platform AustroClim. Its goal is to meet the challenges that climate change poses to science and to support the necessary decisions that need to be made in the political and economic sectors and by each and every individual. This is to be achieved in an interdisciplinary approach that will provide the basis for the decision- making process. In light of AustroClim’s call for a coordinated climatological research effort, and based on an initiative of the Austrian Federal Minister of the Environment, six funding partners1 commissioned the Start Project Climate Protection: „StartClim – First Analyses of Extreme Weather Events and their Impact in Austria“ (StartClim2003). The BOKU - University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences as representative of the AustroClim Research Platform agreed to act as the project leader for StartClim. The administrative tasks were assumed by the Federal Environment Agency. StartClim continued in 2004 by sponsoring research on “heat and drought” and is now set up as a program initiating research in climate change topics not yet established in Austria. StartClim research projects are intended to subsequently be carried farther in the framework of normal research funding or as studies commissioned by interested stakeholders.
