Crosstalks is a high quality and new form of international academic live talk show. Two of Sweden’s leading universities – KTH and Stockholm University – are working together to highlight cutting-edge content from the academic, business and cultural life. The first Crosstalks was sent yesterday, discussing topics of ‘How can we save capitalism?’, ‘The battle for entrepreneurs’ and ‘How to save the world’. Two KTH researchers were taking part in the first Crosstalks, Åsa Moberg, Head of Environmental Strategies Research (fms), and Pontus Braunerhjelm, professor in Economics.

Sept 22-25, 2013. Cambridge, UK
This is the 6th international conference on Engineering Education for Sustainable Development - EESD'13 .
