Die Arbeitsplanung folgt dem bewährten Projektgruppenprinzip der „Europäischen Akademie“. Dabei erarbeitet eine interdisziplinär zusammengesetzte Projektgruppe gemeinsam Lösungen zu einem definierten Themenbereich.
Eine inhaltliche Präzisierung des Programms erfolgt zunächst durch die sogenannte Kerngruppe. In dieser sind Experten aus den wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen Nachhaltigkeitsökonomik, experimentelle Ökonomik, Ethik/praktische Philosophie, Politikwissenschaft beziehungsweise Institutionentheorie vertreten.
Zur intensiven Bearbeitung des präzisierten Programms wird die Projektgruppe um Vertreterinnen und Vertreter aus weiteren einschlägigen Disziplinen erweitert. Diese Disziplinen können sein: Soziologie, Rechtswissenschaft, Wissenschaftstheorie und Governanceforschung.
In insgesamt elf Gruppensitzungen und zwei Evaluierungskonferenzen sowie einzelthemenbezogenen Fachgesprächen und Workshops entwickeln die Projektgruppenmitglieder ausgehend von disziplinär erstellten Textvorlagen eine von allen mitgetragene Studie.
Mit dieser Herangehensweise werden zugleich eine Erweiterung des methodischen Instrumentariums der Nachhal-tigkeitsökonomik sowie insgesamt eine Verbesserung des Planens, Entscheidens und Handelns in nachhaltigkeits - ökonomischen Zusammenhängen angestrebt.
