Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, formerly the Institute of Environmental Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences founded in 1975, is the first comprehensive research institution engaged in research on eco-environmental science and technology in China. In 1986, authorized by State Science and Technology Commission and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), it was amalgamated with Research Center of Ecology of CAS and was reorganized into Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences of Chinese Academy of Sciences (hereinafter abbreviated to RCEES). In June 1999, it became a part of the Pilot Project of Knowledge Innovation Program of CAS. Currently there are 473 staff in RCEES, including 5 academicians, 105 research professors, 106 associate professors, 179 assistant professors and 28 junior researchers or administrators working in various areas. There are 11 research departments or laboratories including three state key laboratories (State Key Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology, State Key Laboratory of Aquatic Chemistry, State Key Laboratory of Urban and Regional Ecology), 8 departments for administration or management and other sections. Being one of the key educational base for graduate students in CAS, RCEES offers M.Sc program in environmental sciences, ecology, environmental engineering, environmental economics and environmental management, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and population, resource & environmental economics; Ph.D program in environmental sciences, environmental engineering, ecology, and environmental economics and environmental management; and provides postdoctoral program in environmental sciences and technology and biology.
