The University of Copenhagen is a classic university established in 1479. The Sustainability Science Centre was established in 2011 and its mission is to provide easy access to all of the University’s competences in sustainability. The Centre brings together the strong disciplinary traditions of several faculties in order to address the key problems of sustainable development and globalization in a highly integrative manner. Thereby, the Centre aims to make the University of Copenhagen a leading actor in this particular field, both in terms of research and in post-graduate education.
