The Urban Studies working group contributes to the Third Mission of the University of Vienna with research on contemporary challenges such as the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in cities, and through its transdisciplinary research design. Through close cooperation with city administrations, the private sector and civil society, an intensive exchange and transfer of knowledge takes place. We address particularly, the human-environment-technology interactions in cities and develop solution and action knowledge for urban sustainability transformations.
