Projects and Results

NEXUS has a broader goal and involves the social sciences in an effort to understand the complex system of natural, institutional, and policy problems and to explore administrative structures of coordinated action related to Earth-surface processes. One previous result of this endeavour was the establishment, in collaboration with Political Sciences, of an international Master of Public Management programme for mid-career technical and managerial personnel, especially from developing or transitional economies. Already in 2009, the Potsdam Research Cluster for Georisk Analysis, Environmental Change and Sustainability (PROGRESS) was inaugurated to merge existing Earth and Political Science competences and resulted in two tenured professorships in the geosciences (geohazards, remote sensing).
