The university aims to become a climate neutral educational and research institution. Sustainability is a central research theme and also intersects with all areas of our research.

The Sustainability research theme is implicit in each research theme with the sustainable use of resources.

Numerous projects for sustainability are being conducted under the other research themes like Energy & Resources; Materials and Production Engineering; Mobility, Transport, Logistics; Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence; Health; and Social & Economic Transformation. These projects are not listed on these webpages under this research theme, but can be found under the other research themes.

Additionally, aspects of sustainable transformation in the social, economic, and ecological spheres are being studied.
