Company history and information

JR-AquaConSol GmbH was spun off as a 100% subsidiary of JOANNEUM RESEARCH in June 2016, and operations commenced on July 1, 2016. JR-AquaConSol GmbH is based in Graz, in the immediate vicinity of the local universities.

In the course of the spin-off, most of the employees of the research group “Water Resources and Environmental Analysis” of the Institute RESOURCES of JOANNEUM RESEARCH were taken over; a total of 25 people are employed in the new company. Current projects and offers, infrastructure (laboratory, EDP, software licenses, vehicle fleet, etc.) as well as existing project results and property rights were transferred to JR-AquaConSol GmbH. This, and in particular the know-how of the team built up over the past decades as a critical success factor of the company, means that JR-AquaConSol GmbH already has all the content-related competencies and operationally necessary resources for processing its business areas in the founding phase.

The roots of JR-AquaConSol go back to 1978, when the “Institute for Geothermics and Hydrogeology” was founded as part of the Graz Research Center as a precursor to the “Institute for Hydrogeology and Geothermics” of the JOANNEUM Research Association.

In 2019 the company portfolio was extended by the takeover of the worldwide planning/installation and maintenance of lysimter plants from METER AG.
