Our mission and activities
As a Competence Center not-tied to an academic program or deparment, STaR is uniquely positioned to support WU’s societal responsibility as a driver of sustainable transformations. Our key aim is to serve as a platform for networking, knowledge exchange, external engagement, and dissemination of exemplary scholarship on all aspects related to environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
We host academic and public events, provide online space for sharing relevant content, and serve as a liaison between WU community and external stakeholders.
We are an interdisciplinary team representing the social and natural sciences, and humanities. We are dedicated to fostering research and teaching collaboration on and beyond our university's campus.
