Becoming Digital and Sustainable

How can we use the potential of digital technologies to support sustainable development? The Informatics and Sustainability Research (ISR) group, founded in 2010, investigates opportunities and risks of the digital transition for sustainable development. Our  research bridges the disciplines of informatics, environmental science, and economics. Please have a look at our latest publications.  The interdisciplinary group is led by Prof. Lorenz Hilty.

Besides our consulting activities for industry, NGOs and governmental institutions, our research contributes to the University's sustainability factsheets (available in German and English).
