L'Àrea de recerca s'estructura formalment a través de dos grups reconeguts:
Sustainability Measurement and Modeling Lab
The Sustainability Measurement and Modeling Lab is a multidisciplinary research group involved in measuring and modeling the many facets of the sustainability science.The SUMM Lab was stablished in 2009 and its main activities are directed by its vision, its mission and its essential values. The vision defines the long term direction of its activities. The mission presents those things that the group would like to achieve and how. Finally, the essential values of the group are those values that, in spite of their inherent diversity, we consider essential in order to define our research.
