Overview:
SERI

The Sustainable Europe Research Institute (SERI) is a Pan-European think tank aiming to explore sustainable development options for European societies.

SERI was set up in September 1999. SERI's research agenda and methodology is based on previous work carried out by Friends of the Earth and the Wuppertal Institute under the auspices of Friends of the Earth's Sustainable Europe Campaign. The Institute aims to develop the concept of environmental space and show ways to substantially reduce the material through-put of modern industrial societies. The research carried out by members of SERI supports the dialogue within European civil society. It specifically aims to further develop the exchange of ideas between environmental citizens organisations, governments, trade unions and industry.

SERI's headquarter is in Vienna. The affiliated academics and researchers live throughout Europe. The policy dialogue SERI aims to engender is supported by this webpage, conferences, meetings as well as publications.

The Sustainable Europe Research Institute

  • investigates environmental, economic, social and institutional conditions for sustainable development
  • develops and disseminates information on through-put limits and makes possible steps towards sustainability apparent
  • develops scientifically accurate and practical policy solutions which allow sustainable development to become a reality in Europe (and beyond).

SERI addresses all relevant agents: businesses, households, civil society agents, administrators and politicians.
