The Institute for Environmental Studies (Instituut voor Milieuvraagstukken, IVM) is an interdisciplinary research institute at VU University Amsterdam that sits within the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences (FALW). We closely cooperate with colleagues from ecology and geography in research and teaching programs.
IVM facilitates three main departments: Environmental Economics, Environmental Policy Analysis and Water and Climate Risk. The two other departments are Chemistry and Biology and Environmental Geography. All departments are located on the VU campus.
