Are you interested in sustainability strategy and practical work with SDGs in the Norwegian Research Council? If yes - then you are welcome to join this workshop.

Why

The sustainability agenda is broad, complex and invites cooperation across disciplines and sectors. However, how can we prioritize research efforts in this challenging landscape in the face of time-critical, interdependent problems that demand change on many different levels of society?

What

In this workshop, we will inspect the sustainability strategy and practical work with SDGs in the Norwegian Research Council. Are we currently on the right track or should the future of sustainability research in Norway take a different route?

Who

  • Moderator: Elizabeth Barron, Associate Professor, Department of Geography NTNU
  • Panelist: Ove Jakobsen, Ecological economist, Nord University
  • Panelist: Nina Therese Maubach, Special adviser for global development, The Research Council of Norway
