ICIS Maastricht University updated their profile picture.
Are you passionate about sustainable development? Would you like to ensure that the resources that we now have will still be available for future generations? And can you see yourself developing strategies to steer governments and companies towards sustainable behaviour? Then the master’s programme Sustainable Science and Policy is the perfect programme for you! This interdisciplinary programme focusses on different factors that affect sustainability, such as global dynamics, policy, governance and law. You'll also learn how to design, conduct and evaluate sustainability assessments. Upon graduation, you'll have all the training you need to pursue a career as a policy maker, sustainability coordinator, strategic policy analyst or a sustainability consultant, but careers in academia will also be open to you.

Prof. Pieter Glasbergen received the Life Time Achievement Award (LTA) for his research on Partnerships for Sustainable Development at the CSSI conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Last year researchers from ICIS, Maastricht University’s institute for sustainable development, created an inventory of projects seeking to make a sustainable change to people’s energy consumption. Together with 10 research partners in the EU Horizon 2020 project ENERGISE, they gathered information on more than 1,000 projects and initiatives in 30 European countries.
Challenges in food, water and energy systems are locally and globally connected. For local actors, including cities, it is difficult to anticipate whether solutions to one issue in the FWE-nexus are sustainable across food, water and energy systems, both at the local and the global scale. The GLOCULL project therefore aims to develop an Urban Living Lab approach for innovations in the FWE nexus that are locally and globally sustainable. To support future implementation of this approach, guidelines and a participatory assessment tool kit will be developed through co-creation in 7 Urban Living Labs, based on an integrated assessment of local-global interactions in the FWE nexus and transdisciplinary action-research in the local Living Labs. On May 16th ,17th and 18th GLOCULL university partners came together in Maastricht to discuss the Living Lab experiments and project deliverables and to visit SUPERLOCAL, the Dutch Living Lab under investigation.
