Type of practice:

Jahn, Thomas/Keil, Florian, in collaboration with Petschow, Ulrich/Jacob, Klaus (2012), Policy Relevant Sustainability Research. Publication of the Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt).



The publication guides various kinds of interested parties by providing detailed actor-specific requirement profiles for policy relevant sustainability research that aims to bridge specific knowledge to bear on policy issues relating to sustainable development.

The guide addresses research funding agencies, contracting entities, researchers themselves, as well as policymakers who participate directly in the research process.
