Centre for Sustainability


At the Centre for Sustainability, we explore the design, governance and political economy of climate, energy, and sustainability policy. We adopt an interdisciplinary perspective complementing economics with insights from political sciences and engineering, and combine theoretical, empirical and model-based analyses. We conduct third-party funded research projects (e.g. federal ministries, EU Commission) with partners across Europe. Our goal is to deliver evidence-based solutions for policymaking by evaluating existing policies and by analysing policy design options, e.g. for achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
