The Globcentre research will be divided into seven research directions: Climate Change and Atmospheric Processes, Dynamics of Natural Processes and Landscape Changes, Socio-Geographic and Demographic Manifestations of Global processes and Changes, Geodynamics, Geochemistry, Biogeochemistry and Toxicology, Ecosystems, Biodiversity and Biological Invasion, Geoinformatics and Geostatistics. Depending upon the needs of the individual research directions, their spatial demands range from 150 to 2000 m2. There are studies, laboratories, equipment rooms, classrooms and seminar rooms as well as storage rooms and rooms with utilities and the corresponding technology. In Globcentre, the core facilities are expected to take up 2000 m2 and will consist in an IT centre, depositories (mostly for herbaria), Library and a map collection.
The number of Globcentre employees is approximately estimated at 480. It must be anticipated that their total number will vary depending upon the grants awarded and research projects addressed.
The total capacity of the Globcentre lecture halls and classrooms is 345 persons. This number is also the maximum number of students who can take part in lectures and seminars at one time during the busiest hours of the working week. The individual Globcentre sites are scientific-research or teaching facilities.
The Globcentre will also include a modern cafeteria for 1500 diners and other types of spaces defined in the Book of Rooms and whose basic characteristics is indicated further in this text.
