DCE is the central gateway of Aarhus University to research-based consultancy and knowledge exchange within the areas of nature, environment, climate and energy. The centre supervises the scientific quality to ensure consistency and an integrated approach across the university departments working in these areas.
Consultation reports, brief communications, public consultation responses, etc., that have been written by scientists at the Department of Environmental Science are published on the Centre’s website.
If you are seeking professional advice or would like to know more about which consultancy agreements the university has on nature and environment, you can read more about the Centre and its mission on its website dce.au.dk or you can contact DCE on firstname.lastname@example.org

Science-based advisory activities at ENVS
ENVS perform science-based advisory activities and environmental monitoring in the areas of air pollution in Denmark and in the Arctic - and emissions, environmental chemistry, microbial ecology and biotechnology, environmental economics, environmental sociology and –politology, and environmental geography.
Science-based advice in environmental issues are demanded by many different public and private institutions.
ENVS provides advice to the Ministry of Environment and Food and Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate in addition to the advice of other public and private institutions.
The demands for monitoring of the environment are included in many EU directives and other places. Monitoring is performed to ensure that we always have an overview of the state of the environment, and whether the trend is moving in the right direction. The outcome and results of the monitoring are thus used to assess how the various plans to improve the state of the environment work. At ENVS, we also make use of the monitoring data and results for scientific research.
ENVS is responsible for the following national monitoring tasks:
The monitoring of air pollution in NOVANA (National program for Monitoring of Aquatic and Terrestrial). Topic Centre on Air Quality
Developing national Danish emission inventories.
Contribute to the monitoring of chemicals in the Arctic
In addition, we carry out environmental monitoring for many private institutions.
