Welcome to the homepage of EISN-Institute              NEWS


EISN-Institute is a NETWORK of about 150 SCIENTISTS from all over the world devoted to provide solutions to ENVIRONMENTAL problems. Our different and complementary approaches and methods include analytical methods to determine different forms of pollution, but we are also concerned with solving the problems beyond just measuring their extent, namely doing remediation and restoration and also doing comprehensive ecosystems research. Here, the very topics most closely related to human health, (global) energy efficiency and others are at the focus of our common concern and scientific interest.

All scientific colleagues involved deal in their day by day business with different fields tackling the various fields of complexity seen in structures and phenomena of atmosphere, water, soil, sediments and organisms, necessitating and motivating an interdisciplinary approach.

Our aim is to inform on, to communicate by and to reflect solutions to international (environment-related) problems. Partners of such a “dialogic  education process” (DEP) include especially students, scientific professionals, applicants of environmental technologies and also the more general public. Mental and cognitive intelligence are the driving forces for developing an “Ethical Consensus”, in which confidence is more important as a (written) contract, high (bio) diversity is leading to stability (of societies) and finally common solidarity is given to “weaker” human beings. We try to deliver a decent if modest support to avoiding anthropogenic contributions to climate changes, by working on development of alternative energy systems, asking how to avoid further loss of biodiversities of humans, animals, plants and (in parts) microorganisms, motivated by the end of finally creating satisfied individuals and societies on a regional, national and (inter)continental level. For reaching these (high) goals, we try to organize or become an active part of workshops and conferences, in addition to writing articles in public and scientific newspaper and journals, and publishing  (text) books.

       It really doesn't matter

       where you are in the world... 


Of  course, we are aware of and promote the tremendous possibilities to serve these goals via the Internet and likewise (critically) acknowledge the role of information and communication exchange by electronic media: recall that the prototype and nucleus of Internet, including FTP/IP protocols, were originally designed for the very purpose of promoting interdisciplinary research, discussion and information within large and highly interdisciplinary scientific and technical communities and institutions (CERN [Geneva, Tim Berners-Lee], ArXiv server for “desk-bottom” prepublishing and thus promoting scientific discussion [Los Alamos, Paul Ginsparg]).


For getting an active partner of us on the worldwide market of information exchange and communication we depend on YOU as partner of our internationally dealing SCIENTIFIC NETWORK and of cooperation with our ENVIRONMENTAL INSTITUTE. Please feel strongly invited to contacting us at your earliest convenience for sharing your ideas and contributions with us.
