Sustainable innovation and impact in the Utrecht region

The Utrecht Sustainability Institute (USI) contributes as knowledge and innovation broker to sustainable urban development, national and international, starting from the Utrecht region. We offer a platform for sharing knowledge, inspiration and social debate in close cooperation with governments, companies, knowledge institutes and societal organisation. 

USI initiates research and innovation projects focused on sustainable use of the strategic reserves energy, water and resources in the city, resulting in:

  • contribution to the realisation of sustainability ambitions of governments, companies and institutions in the region;
  • a regional home market for innovative solutions and knowledge, with a powerful national and international growing potential;
  • contribution to the valorisation objectives of the knowledge institutes in Utrecht.

We invite you to explore our projects and the possibilities for a cooperation with USI via this website. We will keep you informed about the latest developments via our newsletter.
