Sus­tain­able devel­op­ment is an im­port­ant chal­lenge for our time - one which we at the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion wish to thor­oughly ana­lyse. Here, the topic is ad­dressed from a vari­ety of angles in­clud­ing Cor­por­ate Sus­tain­ab­il­ity, Cor­por­ate So­cial Re­spons­ib­il­ity, Good Gov­ernance, in­nov­a­tion re­search, and sus­tain­able con­sump­tion. A total of ten in­sti­tutes and de­part­ments of the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion deal with eco­nomic, en­vir­on­mental and so­cial aspects of sus­tain­able devel­op­ment. In the late 1990s, these activ­it­ies were con­sol­id­ated and re­in­forced in in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary pro­jects with the es­tab­lish­ment of a Re­search Centre for Man­aging Sus­tain­ab­il­ity, which in 2005 be­came the Re­search In­sti­tute for Man­aging Sus­tain­ab­il­ity. In July 2013 the in­sti­tute was es­tab­lished in WU's de­part­ment "So­cioeco­nom­ics" un­der the name "In­sti­tute for Man­aging Sus­tain­ab­il­ity".

Since we are in­ter­ested in ex­chan­ging ex­per­i­ences and ex­pand­ing our net­work of schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers work­ing in the field of sus­tain­able devel­op­ment, we in­vite you to con­tact us:
