The FNR is pleased to invite Luxembourg researchers to an info and networking session on a new European Call in 2017 for interdisciplinary research projects in the domain of “Transformations to Sustainability (T2S)” initiated by the Belmont Forum and the NORFACE network. The session takes place on 31 January 2017, with a registration deadline of 27 January.
About the new T2S Call
Climate change, environmental degradation and resource pressures have created unprecedented situations for societies worldwide. Conventional knowledge and capacity building to tackle the challenges associated with sustainability have proven inadequate, and a comprehensive and concerted research initiative is needed to boost research on transformations to sustainability that can catalyse new kinds of solutions to environmental and social challenges.
Transformations to Sustainability (T2S) is a new funding programme for international, transdisciplinary projects addressing transformations to sustainability initiated by the Belmont Forum and NORFACE network.
In addition to Luxembourg/the FNR, the programme is supported by funding agencies from the following countries: Belgium, Brazil, Chinese Taipei, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the USA.
The official Launch of the Call has been postponed and will be communicated here as soon as more information is available.
