Multidisciplinary Area of Research on Sustainability - MARS





The Multidisciplinary Area of Research on Sustainability (MARS) is one of the University's of Luxembourg key research field.



The University of Luxembourg views sustainable development as a process of change, where the use of natural resources, the structure of economic investment, the orientation of technological improvements and institutional structures have to be consistent with future and current needs.

MARS is the Multidisciplinary Area of Research on Sustainability connecting expertise in the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (FHSE).

MARS goes beyond environmental concerns in sustainability, including in its analysis issues such as creating efficient lifelong education systems, and the personal and social impact of rapidly changing economies and cultures.

Prof. Conchita D’Ambrosio and Dr. Anthony Lepinteur coordinate MARS.
