Competence Center STaRRSS

The competence center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility (STaR) is WU Vienna’s interdisciplinary home for engagement with the grand challenges of our times such as the ones embodied in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We serve as a platform for networking, knowledge exchange, curricula development, and outreach on topics related to environmental, social, and economic sustainability.


Our mission, team, and affiliates are introduced in About Us.


We are proud to serve as a go-to site on Sustainability @WU. Take a closer look and get involved!

For students

Our For Students site has information for students as well as a wider audience.


Our Resources site includes useful materials from WU’s researchers and from business schools around the world.


Together with colleagues at RCE Vienna, we are actively engaged in Third Mission. Visit also our SDG-Hub in the making!
