Research Institute of Wildlife Ecology
The central purpose of the Research Institute of Wildlife Ecology (FIWI) of the Vetmeduni Vienna, is to study the needs and behaviour of wild animals in ecological contexts to establish the scientific basis for efficient nature,- species,- and environment conservation, and for sustainable use of multi-functional landscapes. Scientists from various disciplines (e.g. biology, veterinary science, and genetics) collaborate on long-term, inter-disciplinary and international research at different levels: individual, population, ecosystem, and landscape.
As lead partner of the project, FIWI is in charge of substantive guidance concerning the various inputs and activities, overall project management, co-ordination and facilitation of collaborative processes, monitoring, and reporting. It also contributes to and clears communication materials produced for the project. FIWI is supported in project management functions by the company blue! advancing european projects.
