Bernhard Höfle has been appointed as new member of the Executive Committee of the Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) at the University of Heidelberg.
The Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) combines a wide range of environmental perspectives including natural sciences, social sciences and cultural studies. It focuses on humans’ physical and socio-cultural environments as well as the specific dynamics of these environments, and also on how these dynamics interact with each other. In recent history, the intensity of this interaction has strongly increased in many areas, which challenges us to take a comprehensive approach in examining and integrating various academic perspectives into our research. The GIScience Research Group is funding member of the HCE and contributes the needed competence in Geoinformatics.
