About WasserCluster Lunz

WasserCluster Lunz (WCL) is a nonprofit research center shared to equal amounts by the University of Vienna, the Danube University Krems, and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU Vienna). WCL is financially supported by a partnership with the Provincial Government of Lower Austria, the Federal Government of Austria, and the Municipality of Vienna. At BOKU, WCL is linked to the Department of Water, Atmosphere and Environment, at the University of Vienna to the Department of Limnology, and at the Danube University Krems to the Department of Clinical Medicine and Biotechnology.

WCL was founded in 2005 with the primary motivation to follow the scientific legacy of the Biological Station Lunz, which was established in 1905 (owned by the Austrian Academy of Sciences) and closed in 2003. The Biological Station Lunz was well known for its outstanding research in limnology (e.g., Franz Ruttner's »Fundamentals of Limnology« 1953) throughout the 20th century. WCL was established to reinvigorate freshwater ecosystem research and education in Lunz and to contribute to the advancement of freshwater sciences.
