Energy and water are essential human needs and the secure and stable supply of both is one of the most important political and social tasks. To address the upcoming challenges, and to link the existing expertise in ecological, economic and social science, the University Basel has founded the interdisciplinary Research Center for Sustainable Energy and Water Supply (Forschungsstelle für Nachhaltige Energie- und Wasserversorgung, FoNEW).

The research center is financed by public and private sponsors and supported in its research activity by three faculties: the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Humanities, and the Faculty of Business and Economics. In addition to its research focus the FoNEW will support the Master of Sustainable Development.
