About the Institute

The Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas (IETU) is a research institute acting under the Minister of Climate and Environment. The research and services offered by IETU focus on environmental challenges posed by industrialised and urbanised areas in the context of circular economy, resource efficiency, adaptation to climate change and mitigation of its effects.
