The purpose of Centre for Consumer Science is to gain knowledge of consumption and consumption patterns, which is relevant for researchers, authorities, the industry, organizations, and consumers. The centre is a meeting place for researchers from different disciplines. By working together in interdisciplinary teams a more balanced, profound, and deeper understanding of consumption can be reached.
