Novel sustainability insights are deeply rooted in fundamental research in the natural sciences.

Science for Sustainability (S4S) forms an inclusive and inspiring platform for interaction between researchers, lecturers, and students interested in solutions for sustainability issues. The S4S community strengthens the enormous potential of Utrecht University’s natural sciences to address societal challenges in the field of sustainability. The transition to a sustainable society is a challenge that requires both immediate and sustained research into new technologies, materials, processes, and methods.

Science for Sustainability is one of the communities within Pathways to Sustainability, a strategic theme of Utrecht University.
