The Bayreuth Centre for Ecology and Environmental Research is a research centre of the University of Bayreuth founded in 2004. It bundles the competencies of about 30 working groups in the biosciences and geosciences, supports interdisciplinary research through central facilities and services and improves knowledge transfer. The BayCEER has about 80 members and is led by a five-member steering committee.
The hot summer of 2018/19 made it tangible: BayCEER has been researching and advising on climate change for a long time - and also acting, as in 2019 in a project initiated by students - Klimawald Bayreuth
Neither life nor research stands still: What is currently on the agenda in the focus area of ecology and environmental sciences at the University of Bayreuth is compactly written in the news on the BayCEER website.
