The mission of the Environmental Science Group
of RIBES is to provide high-quality scientific knowledge that can help the world move towards greater sustainability. To achieve this, we aim to understand, project and address the impact of anthropogenic pressures on ecosystems and humans from the landscape to the global scale. This enables us to explore and develop wide-ranging sustainable solutions for the environmental challenges the world faces today.
Within the Faculty, the Radboud Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences
(RIBES) aims to perform world leading research in order to understand the responses of the natural environment to human impact. This curiosity-driven, fundamental research is cross-linked with innovative applications in both industry and society with a focus on mitigating ecosystem degradation and finding solutions to restore the natural environment. In addition to developing world-class research, the institute is dedicated to first-rate education in its Biology BSc, MSc and international PhD programmes.
Radboud University's Faculty of Science
hosts excellent fundamental research in the natural sciences, with a specific focus on creating societal impact. The real problems in society cannot be solved by a single scientific discipline. That is why the Faculty particularly likes to invest in interdisciplinary research.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
