How can we create a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable future? Our research explores possible solutions.

Our research activities include:

  • Undertaking specific projects, such as Converge (funded by the EU), that address specific points within our overall research aims.
  • Publishing our Reports – a series of accessible and timely reports on key themes in sustainability. These are based on original research, literature reviews or ongoing discussions with our local, European or global research communities.
  • Issuing the Challenge Paper Series, which aims to stimulate further research and debate.

Schumacher Research Conference  – A New Social Contract for Sustainability?

Our research programme is currently undergoing expansion with the welcome addition of our Distinguished and Research Fellows, who add significant depth and breadth to our research activities and output. This network of Fellows actively contribute to the research programme and we offer opportunities for researchers to undertake challenging research that might not otherwise be possible in large institutions.
