CET affiliate seminar: Deep and rapid transformation - the way forward
Meeting the internationally agreed climate targets require deep and rapid transformation of society. But how is such transformation achieved, and how can science best contribute?
At this seminar, we want to bring together all CET affiliated researchers to engage in discussions on how to achieve deep and rapid transformation. The purpose is, through a combination of short presentations and group discussions, to discuss the challenge in an interdisciplinary way. We believe that this can be a fruitful way to gradually break down some barriers between disciplines, and over time develop a strong ability to work truly interdisciplinary on challenging questions – something which is at the core of CETs ambitions, and will also prepare us for engaging in new research projects.
We hope that as many CET affiliates at possible will join us at this seminar for discussions and to meet other researchers affiliated with CET.
