To understand, explain and improve our world

Most of the challenges of our time are the result of human activity and must be solved through societal processes. Scientists provide important contributions to identifying and explaining environmental problems, for example. Engineering and medicine can create
solutions for these problems. But implementing new ideas requires a combination of knowledge about and questioning of human behaviour and our social and political institutions.

 

Making it comprehensible

Our researchers’ task is to make the functioning and dynamics of society comprehensible, thereby creating the opportunity to change and, in the best case, prevent the occurrence of problems. Education and research in the social and behavioural sciences generates knowledge and solutions that contribute to efficient social organisation, economic competitiveness and socially sustainable development
