With the new science centre, the University of Kassel is bundling the broad range of research and teaching related to ecological, economic and social sustainability that has already distinguished the university for years. Up to 17 new professorships will strengthen these specialist focal points and develop them further in diverse collaborations with the scientists at the University of Kassel. The core professorships for the corner topics of nature, technology, culture and society will be filled in 2022. The first scientific conference in September 2022 will launch the professional discussion at the Kassel Institute for Sustainability. The University of Kassel is currently developing new courses of study, characterized both by the addition of sustainability skills to existing courses of study and by an entirely new course of study.
