Each one of us is part of society. But how do we influence society as individuals and how does society impact us in our own actions? How is it for institutions? How can we shape institutions that sustainably secure equal opportunities and social cohesion in the age of globalization and digitalization?

These are the questions the transdisciplinary research area (TRA) ‚Individuals, Institutions and Societies‘ explores. Our scientists want to research key influences on the social and economic choices we make such as efficiency resource protection, protection of art and cultural assets, agency and drivers of human motivation.
