A sustainable development can be defined as the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs.
The sustainable Resources MOR aims to integrate researchers from various disciplines and promote multidisciplinary research practices that ensure sustainable research outcomes. The sustainable Resources MOR not only harnesses science and technology research efforts but also focuses on environmentally sustainable human developments. Therefore, The MOR also carries out outreach activities (as part of University Social Responsibility - USR) in the form of action research and researchers from engineering, technological and humanities background are integrated in these activities.
