The challenges facing contemporary society are demanding solutions informed by multiple academic disciplines. Food security, sustainability of the natural environment, social & economic inclusiveness and governance are amongst the important issues that affect people, planet and prosperity.
Therefore CIS-VU’s work focuses on the following thematic areas:
Governance for Society
Food, Life & Health
The Connected World – Connecting people who are not yet connected
These themes can be mapped on the four VU profiling themes, as they apply to the context of the emerging an developing world.
