- What is ZEU about?
Since 1998, the Centre for international Development and Environmental Research (ZEU) has dedicated itself to transdisciplinary research on climate change, resource management, nutrition security and water scarcity, through international cooperation, including transition and developing countries.
In this capacity, ZEU is an ideal platform for joint international projects. Since its foundation, ZEU has successfully implemented more than 80 interdisciplinary projects, including capacity-building-projects within DAAD, EU-TEMPUS. Currently ZEU leads the SDGnexus Network, a global community of universities, research centres, and stakeholders committed to promoting the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, in the framework of the Higher Education Excellence in Development Programme (EXCEED) of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). ZEU recruits its academic members from the faculty of JLU’s departments of law, economics and business studies, social sciences, physics, geography, agricultural sciences, nutritional sciences, biology, as well as environmental management.
