Law, Managing Director

Rohrauer Michaela

Michaela Rohrauer has been the managing director of the ifz since July 2011. She believes the ifz to be an unique institutions, because it is a place where science approaches “the questions of our time” and “the needs of the people”. Thus, it follows an approach that aims to contribute to a better society. “My goal is to continue to create that connection between scientific theory and practice”.

For several years, Rohrauer has been working as a lawyer in the fields of nature and environment protection. This work, that connects law, politics, economy and nature, has confronted her with and sensitized her for many of the urging questions of our contemporary society. The quest for a succeeding life and a human society are very important to her personally.
