LIFE - Institute for Climate, Energy and Society

 

LIFE - Institute for Climate, Energy and Society is one of the leading research institutes for key issues relating to climate change, climate risks and transformation research towards a climate-neutral society.

The more than 40 LIFE researchers are characterized by their comprehensive overall system understanding of the complex correlations in the fields of climate, energy and society in economic, technological, ecological, social and political terms. Based on its scientific excellence, which is based on consistent analysis, modeling and methodological competence, LIFE is a powerful and trustworthy partner in research, for business, industry and the public sector. The clear social mission of LIFE is:

  • Strengthening resilience to climate and weather risks
  • Transition to a climate-neutral economy / society by 2040

Against the background of current challenges due to climatic, technical, social and spatial changes, LIFE helps to develop decision-making bases and application-oriented solutions for burning questions of our time: How can society better cope with the risks of global warming and keep the economic damage as small as possible? Does climate change also create economic opportunities? How can these opportunities be used? What steps are necessary to put our society on a climate-neutral development path so that climate change can be slowed down? All of these research questions are closely related and require similar methodological approaches.
