The scientific and societal mission of SENSE

We understand environmental and sustainability sciences as research efforts that advance knowledge for responding effectively to the risks and opportunities of local and global environmental change and for supporting a transformation towards global sustainability.

SENSE has three fundamental goals in which it wishes to excel:

  • SCHOOL for environmental researchers and professionals: Education and training of young researchers in disciplinary and multidisciplinary environmental issues
  • NETWORK for disciplinary and multidisciplinary environmental sciences: Scientific research of environmental changes, both with regard to disciplinary understanding of the relevant issues and with regard to multidisciplinary understanding in the context of society.
  • BRIDGE to society and environmental governance: Support of society, environmental stakeholders, and policy makers with independent and scientifically based expert advice.

To meet these objectives, the SENSE Research School is dedicated to organizing and facilitating processes of environmental learning, both in terms of relevant scientific research and in terms of relevant training and advanced education, and to improve communication and exchange amongst disciplines and between arenas of science and arenas of policy.
