The University of Zurich (UZH) makes an important contribution to sustainable development in various areas through its research and teaching.
The effects of biodiversity loss on the environment and society are hardly known so far. Therefore, researchers at UZH investigate feedback mechanisms between biodiversity loss and global change.
In addition, research is being conducted at UZH on sustainable energy and how sunlight can be stored in reusable forms in the future. Researchers are also taking a closer look at evolution: By linking evolutionary research with biology and medicine, biological change processes are studied that provide insights into development from the genome to the ecosystem.
