Organizational Context


 
The Department of Social Ecology is part of the Faculty for Interdisciplinary Studies of Austrian Universities (IFF) of Klagenfurt University. IFF was founded as an “Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies of Austrian Universities” in 1978 and had until 2003 the unusual status of an "inter-university" institute. IFF worked in association with the Universities of Klagenfurt, Vienna, Graz, and Innsbruck, and is therefore located in a number of Austrian cities.

 

The Faculty’s goal is to contribute to solving social problems by means of interdisciplinary research and (post)graduate and continuing education. In working on diverse issues, there are two principles that shape the cooperation of the IFF departments:

 

  • Important social problems exist never in isolation but always in context and can only thus be understood. It is necessary to consider historical, sociological and anthropological aspects.
  • Important social problems exist never in isolation but always in context and can only thus be understood. It is necessary to consider historical, sociological and anthropological aspects.

 

IFF aims at a balance between pure research and commissioned work in applied research and development. The Vienna IFF branch employs almost 40 scientists, 15 of whom are employed in the context of the federal university system. Altogether, approximately 65 people work at IFF Vienna.
