For Policy & Practice

We actively cooperate with experts from policy, practice, and the wider public. This page provides a brief overview of our activities.

As we strive for societal relevance of our research, we are open to cooperation requests and proposals from every (civil, private or public) organization interested in pathways for achieving a more sustainable economy and reducing mankinds environmental footprints (through political, social or technical means).

If you would like to discuss options for cooperation with us or just would like to know more about our work, do not hesitate to
