Today's fundamental questions are social
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 behavior and our social and political institutions.
That's where we come in. Research in the social and behavioural sciences generates knowledge and solutions that contribute to efficient social organisation, economic competitiveness and socially sustainable development.
