Transition to a sustainable society

The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development is the scientific institute for sustainability research and teaching of Utrecht University. We contribute to the transition to a sustainable society through scientific excellence in a multi-disciplinary environment. 

We work in multi-disciplinary teams of four research groups: Energy and Resources, Environmental Governance, Environmental Sciences and Innovation Studies.
