Sustainable Development Goals Survey among Researchers

The following report discusses a survey on the topic of the Sustainable Development Goals that was distributed among researchers at Leiden University in the month of November 2021.

In November 2021, Leiden University’s Green Office (LUGO) was interested to learn if researchers at Leiden University were generally familiar with the SDGs and if they considered the SDGs in and during their research. LUGO was keen to capture the perspective of researchers because these ultimately produce the university’s research output. Exploring how researchers relate – or do not relate – to the SDGs could provide insight into Leiden University’s research context, and what terms those working in this context are familiar with. Moreover, LUGO anticipated that this would provide an understanding of how the university could encourage researchers to consider the SDGs in and during their research.

As a first step in this direction, LUGO set up a survey to address how Leiden University researchers regarded the SDGs in their own work. The guiding question of the survey was: how familiar are researchers within Leiden University with the SDGs and to what extent do they consider the SDGs in their research?
