Institutional presentation / Art-science cooperations at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies
- Abstract: The Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam (Germany) conducts research with the goal of understanding, advancing, and guiding processes of societal change towards sustainable development. Our researchers collaborate with diverse actors from science, policymaking and public administration as well as arts to develop a common understanding of sustainability challenges and generate potential solutions. Artists can work at the Institute for a year as part of the Fellow Program or get in touch with the platform “Art-Science Cooperations for Sustainability” if they are interested in a collaboration with researchers in a specific project. At the IASS we also conduct research with the goal of understanding the role and transformative potential of art in societal change.
