The challenges of the 21st century such as energy system transformation, climate change, scarcity of resources, demographic change or social justice demand fundamental social transformations. Science can make key contributions to shaping these transformation processes in the sense of sustainable development, both through a better understanding of the underlying structures and dynamics and through its own involvement in concrete transformation projects.

The Robert Bosch Kolleg "Processes of Sustainability Transformation" is the first of its kind in which a systematic and comprehensive view of transformation processes towards sustainability is taken from different disciplines in research projects in cooperation with and supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The central focus is the question of the conditions for successful transformations: What can be learned from successful processes within different disciplines? What can be learned from failed or faltering processes? How do the dynamics in the different areas take place in time and space?
