Key research area: Multidisciplinary Area of Research on Sustainability

 

 

 

The Multidisciplinary Area of Research on Sustainability (MARS) is one of the University's of Luxembourg key research field.

Sustainable development in the broadest sense is defined in the 2014-2017 four-year plan as including “social cohesion, health, governance and engineering.

The University defines sustainable development as: "a process of change, where the use of natural resources, the structure of economic investment, the orientation of technological improvements and institutional structures have to be consistent with future and current needs."

The Multidisciplinary Area of Research on Sustainability (MARS) goes beyond environmental concerns, involving issues such as creating efficient lifelong education systems, and the personal and social impact of fast changing economies and cultures.

Prof. Dr Conchita D’Ambrosio and Prof. Dr Markus Hesse are coordinating the key research area within the Faculty of Humanities. Alongside the efforts to increase the focus on work related to sustainable development within the Faculty, cooperation  with researchers from across the University, particularly natural sciences and engineering is encouraged in order to contribute to the University-wide sustainable strategy.
