Major needs of your institution / department to increase the impact of climate research
Staffing with scientists and technicians. Due to the economic crisis a number of permanent posts remain vacant. A possible alternative is the closer cooperation with academic institutions and hosting of graduate students to run part of their research activities in ARI's premises and experimental stations.
