Pathways to Sustainability
Sustainability research at Utrecht University is exceptionally strong and covers many different fields. Having the unique combination of top-notch fundamental natural science research, modelling, and scholarship in innovation, transition, governance and finance, Utrecht University, as a broad research university, is at the forefront of innovation in sustainability research.
Pathways to Sustainability advances innovative research via selected scientific ‘hubs’. At this moment, the conception of new approaches for Pathways to Sustainability is in full progress. Several multidisciplinary teams have been formed to follow up on ideas for transdisciplinary approaches addressing the Sustainability themes. The focus will be on identifying and understanding transformative pathways in four thematic areas:
- Deep Decarbonisation of the Energy System
- Future Food
- City of the Future
- Water, Climate and Future Deltas
