Special session sustainability management


Organised by: Leibniz-Working Group Sustainability

Chair: Christiane Cyron (IPB) 


Research organizations provide the scientific basis for developing policy options to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Furthermore, as social actors, research organizations are also responsible for the immediate impact of their activities on their employees, and beyond that: society, and the environment.


The joint project "LeNa – Guidelines on Sustainability Management in extrauniversity research organizations (BMBF 2016)" was dedicated to this topic. In their joint project, Germany’s largest research associations, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Helmholtz Association and the Leibniz Association have addressed the specifics of sustainability management in research institutions.

In this session we would like to present the basic features of the LeNa guidelines and share first experiences of its implementation. We show how aspects of sustainable development can be integrated into the management process. Building on this, we would like to discuss with you how responsibility for sustainability can be addressed in three selected functional areas:

What does research, considering research’s social responsibility, mean? What criteria should be kept in mind when planning and implementing research projects? How can freedom of research and responsibility for sustainability be reconciled?

How can human resource management of a research institution be aligned with the process of sustainable development? What are the challenges? And how can we address and overcome them?

Finally, how can we design, build and operate our research infrastructures,  for instance, research equipment, IT systems, facilities and outdoor facilities, in accordance with sustainability criteria.

We look forward to sharing experiences with you.

Special session: Histories of sustainabilities - what is sustainable development? Past and present perspectives


Organised by: Institute of Contemporary History Munich - Berlin (IfZ)

Chair: Elke Seefried (IfZ München)
