UBA launches National Centre for Environmental and Nature Conservation Information
25 new jobs created at Merseburg site
The German Environment Agency (UBA) today officially opened the National Centre for Environmental and Nature Conservation Information in Merseburg, Saxony-Anhalt. The team, currently consisting of eleven people, will grow to 25 employees by the end of 2024. Their task will be to set up the umwelt.info internet portal. In future, the portal will bundle all relevant information on environmental protection and nature conservation in Germany and make it more accessible. "The new Merseburg site is a perfect fit for UBA," said Lilian Busse, Vice President of the German Environment Agency. "On the one hand, we can draw on the technical expertise of Merseburg University of Applied Sciences, with which we cooperate closely. On the other hand, as an environmental authority we can contribute something to the ecological and digital transformation in a former brown coal region."
