SRA workshop series: Social and environmental impacts across contexts - bringing in global perspectives
Do you want to learn more about how to relate your research to sustainable development and initiate collaborations with researchers in other fields? The Strategic Research Areas, in collaboration with Sustainability Forum, is arranging a series of workshops with focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, during 2021. This workshop is the second within the theme Proposal writing.
Sustainability impacts of innovations will typically be highly dependent on existing and future policies. Significant differences also exist between countries or regions, depending on resources, income disparities, demographics, geography and institutional structures. The focus of this workshop will be on exploring how estimation of impacts for research proposals can be more firmly grounded in local conditions, as well as considering how disruptions and systemic shifts can lead to diverging scenarios.
More information regarding the program will be provided closer to the workshop.
The workshop is arranged in collaboration with the Strategic Research Areas MECW and EXODIAB.
In connection to this theme the doctoral course Sustainability impacts and Societal Relevance in Research Proposals will be arranged, open to all doctoral students. Register before September 30.
Aim of the workshop series
As the climate and other planetary crises escalate, there is a need to develop the SRA’s to better meet the societal challenges and to find solutions to achieve a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable development worldwide.
The aim of the workshops is to develop work processes of common interest, exchange experiences and strengthen sustainability collaboration between research areas, as well as to create a broader reflection on sustainability issues at Lund university and in society. The sustainable development goals can in this context function as a common language connecting academic activities with policy goals.
Workshops will mainly target researchers, doctoral students and research coordinators/administrators from the Strategic Research Areas, but the workshops will be open to all staff within Lund University.
