The Institute of Aquatic Ecology is the largest scientific centre in Hungary which considers its mission to be the outstanding regional engagement in the field of aquatic ecology and its co-studies, and to establish and represent international research trends in Hungary. The Institute’s primary mission is to conduct basic research, with a special focus on integrative, systems ecology approaches to climate change, invasions and anthropogenic impacts on water, thus contributing to the maintenance and improvement of the ecological status of our domestic waters.
