UniNEtZ- Policy Statement

In the second project phase, the main focus of UniNEtZ is on making contributions to the transformation of society toward sustainability.

Reflexion 2023 SDG 1-17

Georg Gratzer, Patrick Scherhaufer and Reinhard Steurer from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) have written a guest commentary in the Standard on the role of science in the climate crisis. In their text, they advocate for science to become more involved in the political discourse in order to be effective.
