Sustainability is the central guiding theme of our research. We study the Earth in all its aspects: from the Earth’s core to its surface, including man’s spatial and material utilisation of the Earth.

Research themes

We focus in particular on the following themes:

  • Water, Climate and Ecosystems
  • Energy and Resources
  • Healthy Urban Living
  • Future Deltas
