Welcome to the website of the Interdisciplinary Lab on Climate Change of the University of the Balearic Islands (LINCC UIB). This scientific-technical institution was founded in 2017 with the main objective of promoting the diffusion, teaching, research and transfer towards society of the climate change knowledge generated within our university community.

Climate change represents one of the greatest environmental challenges faced by society in the XXI century. It is indeed a complex phenomenon that imposes an urgent research necessity and has to be undoubtedly confronted from a multidisciplinary approach. Consequently, the Laboratory gathers a heterogeneous group of researchers and experts, composed of members from the Departments of Public Law, Applied Economics, Philosophy and Social Work, Applied Pedagogy and Educational Psychology, Physics, Geography, Biology, Mathematics and Computer Science, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, and also from the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA).

Given this current situation, joint and interdisciplinary responses are required. The University, due to its key role in the evolution of scientific advances, has become a fundamental pillar among all the agents involved (public administrations, private sector and civil society) in the development of strategies on the forecasting, adaptation and mitigation of the consequences of climate change and global warming.
