Sustainability in Research
One of our objectives in our research sub-strategy is to advocate responsibility and sustainability. To achieve this we aim to strongly encourage researchers’ efforts towards open science and open access of publications as well as expect all researchers to link their research projects and outputs to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Hanken chooses Areas of Strength in research every five years. Areas of strength are an important strategic decision regarding which research themes are considered to maintain a high level internationally and should be given priority when resources within research are distributed. During 2019-2023, three of the four areas of strength are clearly related to sustainability themes. These are:
