Welcome to the Sustainability Center Freiburg!

We are a cooperation between the University of Freiburg (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, ALU) and Freiburg's five Fraunhofer institutes.

Together with small and large companies such as Daimler AG and Robert Bosch GmbH, we conduct research and develop sustainable technologies and solutions.

Sustainable development depends on carefully addressing the most relevant challenges of our time. Thus, we focus on topics such as climate change and resource scarcity but also the effects of digitization and growing complexity on our societies.

The Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INATECH) at the University of Freiburg is the engineering core of the Sustainability Center.

The Sustainability Center also cooperates with the cluster of excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS).

Through our partners, such as the city of Freiburg, we are bringing the results from the scientific community directly into real life.
