The Center for Advanced Studies regards itself as a platform for scientific exchange and interconnectedness. Transcending the disciplinary boundaries, the Center devotes itself to future-relevant issues as well as the observation, description and analysis of economic and societal processes of change. Within the research activities, themes and issues of regional relevance will be connected to global challenges, and regional developments will be put into the global context. Within the scope of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research the embeddedness will be followed in global networks as well as the sensitization of local and regional actors for global themes. In terms of transformative research, the Center for Advanced Studies aims at linking and initiating learning processes between science and society. Future developments will be identified and anticipated scientifically, in order to supportively design political decisions and social directions.
