Combining the capacities of five organisations and institutions, the Innovation Campus Bonn has been launched in Germany’s “UN City” to boost sustainability research.

During the COP23 World Climate Summit, held in Bonn, Germany in November 2017, the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), “Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg”, the German Development Institute (DIE), the Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC) and the University of Bonn with its Center for Development Research (ZEF) joined forces to establish the Bonn Alliance for Sustainability Research. The aim of the Alliance is to concentrate research expertise in the field of sustainability research. It has conceived the Innovation Campus Bonn (ICB) to perform the threefold mission of research, teaching, and communication and policy advice concerning sustainability. Research is to initially concentrate on three key areas.

Research in the area of “Digitisation and Artificial Intelligence” focuses on the impact that these two fields will be having on implementing the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Climate Agreement. Activities are already in progress in this area, with the Scientific Advisory Council to the German Government (WBGU) and the DIE collaborating with the University of Bonn.
