The activities of the National Climate Change Laboratory, a collaboration between several universities and research institutes, include the study of climate change drivers and their impacts on nature, economic systems and society, as well as research and development in the field of climate adaptation. The platform supports a wide range of water-related research to promote a deeper understanding of the impacts of climate change. Among others, by studying the climatic effects on planktonic organisms in Lake Balaton, which can play a role in understanding the impact of climate change on freshwater organisms. Another sub-project of the Lab aims to build a so-called Water 4.0 research infrastructure, which will provide a framework for the automation, remote access and operation of various water treatment and management tasks.
The National Laboratory on Climate Change carries out research and development activities in the field of technological, economic and social adaptation, in addition to studying the characteristics of climate change and the impacts of climate change elements on human health, natural and economic systems and society.
