Evolutionary Perspectives on Adaptation and Global Survival

The Institute of Advanced Studies Kőszeg (iASK) is dedicated to innovative climate change research, recognizing the urgent challenge of adapting to a changing climate and developing global survival strategies. From the perspective of evolutionary biology, research explores the profound implications of climate change on ecological systems and human societies. This includes how humans have historically adapted to environmental challenges, leveraging this knowledge to inform our response to the ongoing crisis.  As scientific evidence and mathematical models converge, it becomes increasingly apparent that humanity is approaching a critical juncture with far-reaching consequences. Acknowledging the potential tipping points and their anticipated onset around 2050, research aims to address the crisis with mitigation strategies. Through interdisciplinary collaboration and rigorous scientific inquiry, the interplay between environmental changes, biological responses, and societal resilience is investigated.
