Kassel Institute for Sustainability

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 subject areas and develop them further in diverse collaborations with the scientists at the University of Kassel. The core professorships for the cornerstone topics of nature, technology, culture and society have been filled in the meantime. The first scientific conference in September 2022 kicked off the professional discussion at the Kassel Institute for Sustainability. The University of Kassel is currently developing new courses of study, which are characterised both by the addition of sustainability skills to existing courses of study and a completely new course of study.
