The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna founded by the Austrian Empire in 1872, is an education and research centre for renewable resources in Vienna. BOKU began as an agricultural institute (1872), and, in 1896, BOKU moved from the 8th district to the area around the "Türkenschanzpark" in the 19th district. BOKUs goal is to contribute significantly to the protection of precious renewable resources resources for future generations. With a connection between natural sciences, engineering and economics, BOKU aims to deepen knowledge about using natural resources ecologically, economically and sustainably. BOKU combines fundamental and applied expertise in the fields of natural sciences, engineering and biotechnology as well as social and economic sciences to enhance the knowledge basis for sustainable management of natural resources. It is a member of the Euroleague for Life Sciences (ELLS) university network. Constantly being aware of environmental issues, BOKU was the first Austrian university to receive the European EMAS certificate for its environmental management system in 2006. BOKU’s ‘Centre for Global Change and Sustainability’ supports the university in realizing its societal responsibility.

The Centre for Development Research is dedicated to the transfer of know-how and technology for sustainable development in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Topics in teaching and research -sustainable use of naturally growing raw materials both for energy supply as well as for innovative materials -protecting natural resources such as water, soil and atmosphere -shaping true to life recycling processes -interrelation between food production and health -managing biotopes and environments -protecting the wellbeing of plants, animals and humans.
