As future decision-makers, students have a crucial multiplier role in the implementation of sustainable development as outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals. This means a mutual exchange of ideas, knowledge, technology and people within the university, with partner organizations and with business and society.

To train responsible innovators for sustainable development, the RRI Hub offers various teaching formats in collaboration with different internal and external university stakeholders. The aim is to raise students' awareness of their own social responsibility and empower them to act to take action towards realizing the SDGs. The RRI Hub employs a competency-based approach to teaching in all of its foundational and advanced modules and offers interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary modules to teach intercultural competencies and global perspectives.
