Evaluation of KTH’s sustainability research

KTH-Sustainability sees a need for evaluating research related to environmental science and technology and sustainable development at KTH. This is valuable for external communication of our strengths and also for future strategic work, for example in relation to the new development plans. The basis for the evaluation will be material produced within the RAE 2012. There will be an information meeting Feb 8th at 11.30-13.00 in Sydöstra Galleriet, KTHB. A lunch sandwich will be served, so please notify your attendance in this doodle no later than Feb 4th.

New colleague at KTH-Sustainability

My name is Helene Limén and I will work as a project leader at KTH-sustainability from the 14th of January. My background is within the field of ecology and I have previously worked as a researcher both in Sweden and Canada. During the past five years I have worked with technology assessments at the Swedish Parliament – dealing with issues that have bearing on sustainable development and future challenges. I am looking forward to elucidate and strengthen the ongoing work of sustainable development of KTH’s research, education and collaboration.

Seminar: What is social sustainability?

While many teachers and researchers at KTH feel quite at home with the ecological dimension of sustainability, the social and economical dimensions are perceived as more hard to grasp. To support the inclusion of also these perspectives, KTH-Sustainability is arranging two seminars during the spring 2013. Each seminar will comprise a number of short presentations followed by discussions. The first seminar focusing on social sustainability is Thursday Feb 7th at 13.00-15.00 at Salongen, KTHB.
