The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development is a world-leading research centre for sustainability research and teaching, based at the Faculty of Geosciences at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. The Institute hosts numerous fellows, senior fellows and lead faculty members of the Earth System Governance Project. At the Copernicus Institute, most research on earth system governance is carried out by the Environmental Governance group. However, given the interdisciplinary character of most research at the Institute, the Environmental Governance team maintains close links to all other groups and individuals in the Institute.
