Sustainability and climate change

Researchers at the Department of Biology contribute through research and collaboration to dealing with the major societal challenges formulated in the UN's 17 Goals for Sustainable Development.

Researchers at the Department of Biology want to contribute to sustainable development and to solving the biodiversity and climate crisis. This is done, among other things, through interdisciplinary research, which addresses four of the UN's goals of 'Clean Water and Sanitation', 'Climate Action', 'Life in the Sea' and 'Life on Land'.

The common denominator for our work in creating solutions to issues within sustainability and climate is innovation and collaboration with other research environments and partners from the business community and society, both in larger research centers and in smaller projects.
