University of Innsbruck, Institute of Geography plays a key role (management and coordination) in both UniNEtZ and CCCA. The Institute of Geography acts as an interface to these initiatives. UniNEtZ is a consortium of 16 universities, the Federal Geological Survey and forum n. In the first phase 2019-2021, over 300 scientists worked out options and measures on how the Republic of Austria can fulfil the sustainability goals of the 2030 Agenda. In the second phase 2022-2024, the main focus is on transdisciplinary dialogues with societal target groups as well as scientific monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of measures to achieve the SDGs.

Climate Change Centre Austria is the Austrian alliance of climate change research institutions counting 28 Universities and research institutions as members and envisions strengthening the Austrian climate research community, to facilitate the education of a new generation of researchers, to support knowledge transfer and to advise society and decision makers. Aiming at the coordination of the Austrian climate science community but also at the increased visibility of Austrian research. The CCCA applies as a dissemination partner for its members in various proposals of ACRP calls as well as EU projects.

Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik is the federal meteorological and geophysical service of Austria. The department of climate research has extensive experience in climate monitoring, climate data analysis and modelling. In the SDG-HUB project the expertise on available datasets, their advantages and disadvantages, their benefits and limits in terms of interpretability as well as knowledge on linking weather and climate data climate impact indices as well as the experience in communicating climate information is especially relevant.

MODUL Technology brings expertise in data and media collection, analysis and annotation, built up in past and current projects managed by its lead researchers: LinkedTV, MediaMixer, InVID, ReTV, GENTIO, EPOCH. Thus its role in SDG-HUB will be to take responsibility for Web data collection and annotation, and in knowledge modelling, extraction and knowledge-based predictive modelling.
