The Centre for Research on Sustainable Societal Transformation (CRS) is a cross-disciplinary research centre for research on societal and scientific challenges for the past, present and future.
The Centre for Research on Sustainable Societal Transformation at Karlstad University conducts multidisciplinary research on current and historical trends as well as future challenges. Our researchers work collaboratively across local, regional, national and international issues, and aim to contribute new research results and methods to the field of sustainable development and a range of other societal challenges.
CRS is an inclusive center that unites researchers from many different areas and with different approaches, which fosters a dynamic research environment. Some of the research questions in which our researchers are engaged include: How can we jointly use all the forest's resources in a sustainable way? How does digitization affect tourism and the development of visitor destinations? How is the day-to-day life of a family affected when moving from the big city to an urban area? How can we learn from local and historical knowledge for a sustainable future? These are just some of the issues within CRS's broad research fields.
