Founding of corsus research gUG- RESEARCH FOR A SOCIAL-ECONOMIC CHANGE

corsus research

Social-ecological change is urgently needed. In particular, there is a need to develop implementation knowledge on a scientific basis that addresses practical and everyday issues and integrates knowledge from different scientific disciplines. In this way, solutions can be developed that are relevant to practice and everyday life and therefore have a greater chance of being implemented rather than creating additional sustainability problems. Many developments in recent years and decades have shown that this is often still lacking. This is why Dr. Anke Butscher and Dr. Ulrike Eberle founded the non-profit corsus research gUG.

Against this background, the aim of corsus research gUG is to develop transdisciplinary knowledge for the implementation of the urgently needed socio-ecological change. The focus is on research projects on municipal issues, especially on impact-oriented budgeting, municipal sustainability goals and the governance of sustainability at the municipal level.

Further focal points are impulses for the implementation of corporate sustainability strategies, for example on innovative sustainability management and necessary change processes, as well as on research on sustainable food systems, especially in the linkage with municipal processes and necessary infrastructures.

At corsus research gUG, we attach great importance to developing practical and everyday solution knowledge for the socio-ecological transformation. For this purpose, it is essential to reflect different disciplinary backgrounds in our research projects in addition to the practical or everyday perspective.

The normative guard rail of the scientific work is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which were adopted by the international community in 2015.
