Helmut Metzner (September 15, 1925 - September 20, 1999) was a professor for chemical plant physiology at the University of Tübingen (Germany).

Hans Filbinger founded in October 1979 together with Helmut Metzner, Günter Rohrmoser, Heinz Karst and Erich Baumann the right wing think tank Studienzentrum Weikersheim [1] and Metzner was at least until 1995 a member of the board. [2]

Metzner founded in 1986 the 'Europäische Akademie für Umweltfragen' (EAU or in English the European Academy for Environmental Affairs) in Tübingen and remained its president until his dead in 1999. EAU organized together with the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP) a conference in Leipzig in 1995 and another conference in Bonn in 1997 which resulted in the Leipzig Declaration on Global Climate Change.


Several of his books were officially published (herausgegeben) by the 'European Acadamy' although the logistics is done by Hirzel Verlag in Stuttgart. [3]
