The scientific mission of Home Ecomics is to make the case for a sustainable, responsible requirement-orientated everyday culture of solidarity of the genders and generations. These innate value concepts for research and teaching serve to define its disciplinary competence and lay the foundation for meaningful inter- and trans-disciplinary research and teaching. The Personal and Social Systems Theory of Household Activities is conceived as a self-contained scientific theory and methodology for university home ecomics research and education. As an applied science of great varieties of practice-oriented professions it offers the essential common foundation.
