We want to have a positive impact on the transition to a sustainable society. We do this by developing excellent and relevant knowledge and by educating the change agents of the future. We interact with citizens, politicians, policy makers, NGO’s and firms to learn and influence decisions.  We work in interdisciplinary teams and have organized our research around three cross-topical themes and five sustainability challenges.

The themes, Governance, Modelling and Transitions, represent our generic signature and covering central aspects of sustainability research and policy. The five 5 topical sustainability challenges, Circular Economy, Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Food, Sustainable Land and Sustainable Water, cover our total research strengths.
