“Research for Sustainable Solutions@UDE”

With the UDE theme day “Research for Sustainable Solutions@UDE”, the UDE launches its strategy process sustainability and starts with research: exciting impulse lectures from the fields of energy, water, health, mobility as well as transformation and communication await you. Following the presentations and in world cafés in the afternoon, the impulses and other aspects can be discussed and deepened in an interdisciplinary way. As a large scientific institution, the UDE is developing a sustainability concept that includes three strands of action that are to be aligned, coordinated and networked in such a way that the knowledge and actions of the UDE have an impact:

1. Research for Sustainable Solutions@UDE – Our science is creative and innovative. What scientific solutions do we provide to combat climate change, for better use of energy and raw materials, and for a future-proof life, among other things?

2 Teaching Sustainable Solutions@UDE – The graduates of the future – we are committed to education for sustainable development!

3. Practicing Sustainable Solutions@UDE – We are shaping our campus, working on it and living on it in a way that positively impacts the sustainability balance of the region!

Applications are open until February 16, 2023. Please find the program below.
