IKEM finances its research primarily through project grants. These are awarded through national and European funding programmes and/or made available through public and private contracts. The Institute receives additional financial support from its strategic partners and private individuals.
International Climate Law Network
Climate change does not respect borders. That is why international networking is indispensable in climate research. Since its foundation, IKEM has been working closely with renowned research institutions from all over the world. This cooperation and the scientific exchange with our partners come together in our International Climate Law Network.
Partnerships | Memberships
Collaboration with our partners and other organisations is essential to our work. IKEM is a member of various initiatives and, since 2017, has held Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
