In order to advance ecological, economic, and social sustainability, regional know-how based on the important pillars science and economy has to be used. In the framework of a summer university, knowledge as regards the issue sustainability will be generated among the participating target groups. In this context, co-operation will be sought with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that want to follow a socially, ecologically, and economically exemplary manner or already represent best practice and can thus give valuable advice.
