National and International Collaboration
Utrecht Sustainability Institute
The Utrecht Sustainability Institute (USI) is a partnership between Utrecht University, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research TNO, Deltares, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and the KWR Watercycle Research Institute; other participants are the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). The Province of Utrecht and the Municipality of Utrecht, too, have close links with USI.
USI aims to bring together existing fundamental and applied knowledge held by stakeholders in the broad field of ‘earth and sustainability’, thus forming collaborations that are of the highest European and international standing. Another key aim of USI is to bring knowledge to market in collaboration with private (industrial) partners and governments at the regional, national and international levels. In this way, it will be ensured that knowledge will be of more use to society. Read more about USI
