Collaborative research

Students regularly use the university as a Living Lab and do research into how the university can become even more sustainable. A win-win situation: the student can conduct research into a 'real' case and the Green Office receives advice based on scientific research.

Examples of research on sustainability in collaboration with the Green Office are:

  • Research into the most sustainable way of drying hands in the toilets.
  • Research into heat stress in the Mercator building.
  • Research into sustainability knowledge among students.

Would you also like to do research on sustainability within the RUG? We have the following questions you can get started with:

  • How can we reduce light pollution on Zernike?
  • How can we make the CO2 footprint tool developed by the Green Office suitable for personal use?
  • Plastic recycling strategies.
