Swiss Park Research

The Swiss parks research coordination helps parks and other protected areas with their research and cooperation projects in common fields of research. This office is hosted within the Swiss Science Academy, which was commissioned to manage this mission by the Federal Office for the environment (FOEN).


The Swiss parks office runs its own geoinformation centre, which core responsibilities include database maintenance, park support, geographical data management and active know-how transfer. The centre also manages the Parcs Data Centre database, which aims to preserve knowledge and information over the long term.
