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 change agents of the future. We collaborate with citizens, politicians, policy makers, NGOs and firms to learn from each other and influence decision-making.

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 signature and cover central aspects of sustainability research and policy. The five topical sustainability challenges, Circular Economy, Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Food, Sustainable Land and Sustainable Water, highlight our research strengths.
