Stockholm PhD Student Dialogue on Sustainability, October 24th
This year’s Stockholm PhD Student on Sustainability dialogue will be hosted by Karolinska Institute the 24th of October. The dialogue gathers PhD-students from the Stockholm region to discuss sustainable development as a means to increase and strengthen research collaboration across disciplinary and institutional boundaries.
Upcoming SEI-KTH events
October 9th, Thinking Ahead with SEI and KTH: “Using the Nexus to achieve sustainability in the 21st century”. Join researchers from SEI and KTH to discuss how science can inform policy for sustainability. The analysis of individual nexus components (such as climate, energy, water and food) routinely uses modelling tools. Developing integrated tools which link the nexus components can enhance our knowledge about these systems and in turn help policy makers assess different development strategies.
