Excellence Strategy

Sustainable Management of Natural Resources

Climate change relevant research at the University of Tübingen focuses on processes and possible consequences of global change and as well on suitable mitigation strategies. Here, research has to address the science needed for understanding of processes and impacts but also needs to focus on ethical, societal, law-related, and technical aspects in joint projects. We envisage a mixture of fundamental research and applied research including the establishment of strategies for the management of natural resources in cooperation with interest groups such as policy makers, environmental regulators and society. The Platform thus offers the chance to learn from a number of successful transdisciplinary research projects and to address the perspective of the non-researcher community.
