The Environmental Sciences are leveling up

New institute, new Master's program, new website, the environmental sciences and humanities at the University of Fribourg are growing.

The UniFR_ESH Institute (University of Fribourg Environmental Sciences and Humanities) was founded in June 2019, led by Prof. Ivo Wallimann-Helmer, who arrived at the University of Fribourg in 2018.
