Our research aims at contributing to the solution of pressing sustainability problems. The professorship is locally embedded and characterized by continuous collaboration with actors from Lüneburg and its surroundings. Our work is also embedded in a large international network of universities, institutions and researchers. We envision our contribution to significantly advance transdisciplinary sustainability research with regards to the interfaces between science and society and society and the environment by advancing epistemological and methodological foundations of transdisciplinary sustainability research. We also collaborate within our faculty with colleagues across disciplines and institutes in order to facilitate the creation of solution-oriented and actionable knowledge.
