The School shall be at the international forefront of providing high-quality research and education, resulting in knowledge and competence that can contribute to policymaking and assist businesses in their handling of fundamental societal challenges. Accordingly, sustainability is integrated into all operations at the School.
The School shall act on challenges facing the world today, such as climate change, the decline of biodiversity, migratory flows, social exclusion, the effects of demographic changes, the vulnerability of political and financial systems, the erosion of multilateral structures for international cooperation, the distribution and redistribution of resources, or transformative structural changes resulting from technological developments.
In both research and education, these societal challenges should be approached with the most appropriate academic tools available, and often involve cross-disciplinary collaboration. Thus, we consider it to be an important asset that our School includes a broad set of academic disciplines, and that we are
part of a comprehensive university.
