The Sonnblick Observatory benefits of long-term partners playing an important role for growth in infrastructure and science. The comprehensive measuring program of the Sonnblick Observatory is supported by the following various institutes: These very important long-time monitoring projects are part of the work by the Austrian Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt GmbH), the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), the Technical University Vienna (TU-Wien) and is enhanced by the ministry BMLFUW (, the BMWFW ( and the state governments of Salzburg and Carinthia.
