Organisation RCSC

The Radboud Centre for Sustainability Challenges started in July 2019, with the first phase running until December 2021. The RCSC is led by Ingrid Visseren-Hamakers (Professor Environmental Governance and Politics, Faculty of Management) and Ad Ragas (Associate Professor Environmental Science, Faculty of Science). A small group of Radboud University researchers and lecturers from all faculties and an external advisory board are the internal and external pillars of the RCSC. Furthermore, the RCSC is in close collaboration with Radboud Green Office, the Program Director Sustainability and the network for sustainable development (NDO) at Radboud University.

We enhance the connection of inter- and transdisciplinary research on sustainability by bringing researchers together, in seminars, joint projects and research proposals. Also, we increase the impact of Radboud University’s research to support the transformations and connections societies need to get to the SDGs’ objectives. We can do this because we make an effort to know society’s questions.


In terms of education, we make sure that each Radboud University graduate is aware of the concept of sustainability in relation to their field of study, and stimulate the offering of a wide range of courses and study programmes relevant for sustainable development. We support in the development of courses related to sustainability aimed at interdisciplinary education, and in the development of education programmes with sustainable development at their heart.
