About the Department

Department of “Protection and Economy of Environment” was established in 2009 as a result of the combination of two independent departments – “Economic Geography” and Economy of Nature Management” and “Production Systems and Environmental Protection”. The department of “Economic Geography”, united in this chair, had been functioning since the 1930s. Since 1966 the departments of “Economic Geography” and “Technology of production” have been functioning independently, and subsequently the name of both chairs has changed many times, and finally, in 2009, continued its activity under the title of “Environmental Protection and Economy”.
