BOKU has set itself ambitious strategic sustainability goals, including in the area of research.

Based on this, the Working Group (WG) Sustainability Research was founded in November 2020. With its work it supports the efforts of BOKU to proactively promote sustainability-relevant research and strengthens the discourse at the university.


The majority of the departments as well as the scientific centers or initiatives and the research service of the BOKU are represented in the working group. Christian Obinger, Vice-Rector for Research & Innovation, regularly takes part in the meetings of the working group on behalf of the Rectorate.


Lead of the AG Sustainability Research:


We look forward to your suggestions, ideas and topics!

If you are concerned with topics in the field of BOKU sustainability research that you want to bring to the working group, or if you want to announce events in the "Sustainability in Discourse" series, please contact us.
