Organizational and technical support for colloquia “Making Environmental Policy Fit for Transformation: New Basic Configurations for Applied Environmental Policy”.

Duration August 2015 – November 2015

Project manager Dr. René John

Client UBA

Cooperation partner

The aim of the UBA colloquia was to support the exchange of experience and networking of ideas between public institutions, scientific institutions involved in applied sustainability and transformation research, and also within the Federal Environment Agency.

This project was intended to follow on from the series of lectures on greater sustainability “Germany’s Paths to the Future” held by UBA a few years ago. The substantive objective of the project was to send out new (networking) impulses, to take up innovative ideas, to address dynamics that may lie beyond conventional environmental policy, to shed light on the field of transformation research, and to discuss and, if possible, further develop new basic configurations for applied environmental policy.

December 2022 – January 2025

Against the background of a growing global demand for proteins and at the same time significant negative impacts of the production of animal products, the focus of the project is on the exploration of alternative protein sources and analogues. The aim is to obtain an overview of current processes, raw materials and products for the provision of alternative proteins and analogues and to investigate, on the basis of a selection, how likely and desirable the diffusion of these alternatives is.

October 2021 – November 2023
