We develop high quality and relevant knowledge related to sustainable development to have a positive impact on the transition to a sustainable society. This is accomplished through influencing political and private decisions by communicating high-quality knowledge.

Four research groups

Given the integrated nature of sustainable development issues, we strongly believe in multidisciplinary knowledge development. We integrate knowledge in the following fields, corresponding to our four research groups.

    Research themes aligned to the SDGs

    Our research contributes to improved knowledge related to all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set by the United Nations in 2015. However, we are especially strong in knowledge development related to the eight goals below. We also study the impact of the SDGs on societal change and how they interact.
