The issue of climate change is one of present-day's major societal challenges. It is global, long-term, complicated and in many countries also politically infected. The research at LiU is interdisciplinary and unites the traditions of the sciences, the social sciences and the humanities.

The climate problem is put into its context alongside other measures for sustainable development. Research is also being conducted into how knowledge and communication are used and translated into a basis for decision-making at various levels, as well as into the experiments and discussions concerning large-scale climate manipulation.

The research is conducted as fundamental research in close collaboration with various clients in society.

The Norrköping Decision Arena was inaugurated in May 2015.
