About CEC

The Centre for Environmental and Climate Research, CEC, is a combined physical and virtual centre at Lund University. CEC conducts research, education and communication on environmental sciences and climate research.


CEC's mission is to initiate, support and conduct education and research on society’s impact on the natural environment and on societal challenges and possible solutions concerning the environment, climate and sustainable development. CEC is to promote interdisciplinary research and education within climate and environmental issues, highlight and communicate research findings and serve as a link to key stakeholders within its area of operations. CEC activities are therefore of an interdisciplinary nature, based on cooperation between departments across faculty boundaries, and characterised by collaboration with community stakeholders. CEC activities are based on research at the faculty’s departments, while CEC adds further value to the departments’ research.


As an innovative and vibrant forum of interdisciplinary research, education and interaction between research and society, the Centre for Environmental and Climate Research is to be an engine for sustainable local, regional and global development in the field of the environment and climate. The centre brings added value and leverage for subject-specific research at Lund University, is a springboard for new generations of researchers and professionals trained in interdisciplinary approaches and makes evidence-based knowledge that contributes to solutions in the field of environmental and climate research. The overall result is a deeper scientific understanding of and ability to manage the conditions for sustainable development.
