Seminar: Research and research collaboration for Agenda 2030
Seminar: Research and research collaboration for Agenda 2030!
On 25th September 2015, UN’s member states adopted Agenda 2030, a universal agenda including the global goals for sustainable development (SDG). The Global Goals in turn have 169 targets and 230 indicators.
In this context sustainable development integrates the three dimensions of sustainability: social, economic and environmental. World leaders have committed to achieving four things until 2030; to eliminate extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, solve the climate crisis and promote peace and justice!
The SDGs is everyone's concern and an increasing number of research funders require applicants to put their research in this context and even align with the SDGs.
In this seminar, we will take a practical approach to sustainability at KTH and the SDGs in relation to research and research collaboration.
We will conclude the event with networking, food and drinks - Welcome!
For planning and catering purposes, please register here to participate.
