Layman's description

In 2020 the new research programme of the Department of Environmental Sciences has been published. The programme is titled: Learning and Innovation for Resilient Social-Ecological Systems (LIRSS). With its research the department wants to contribute to finding ways towards a sustainable future. The research contributes to a better understanding of socio-ecological systems, the development of solutions for environmental problems and the knowledge that helps societies to attain their sustainability goals.

The Department’s research is highly interdisciplinary, whereby three main research foci can be distinguished: 

  • Integrated environmental modelling of socio-ecological systems
  • Learning for sustainability
  • Innovations in environmental governance.


Dive into the research topics where Department of Environmental Sciences is active. These topic labels come from the works of this organisation's members. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
