Symposium: Greening the Research System: Towards Climate-Friendly Research Activities
This event will be hosted as a virtual conference. The IASS and JPI CLIMATE will jointly organize a workshop on the opportunities, barriers and merits of Climate Friendly Research. The goal of this workshop is to take action in order to make research activities more environmentally friendly and to work towards reducing the steadily increasing ecological and carbon footprint of the research system
To do so, the symposium will continue the learning process already started within JPI Climate and other initiatives by involving further scientific communities as well as interested non-academic stakeholders.
Another complementary strategy to reach this goal will be to create awareness amongst decision makers on both the European and national levels on the needs of stakeholders (researchers, research funders, non-academic stakeholders) in order to further implement climate friendly research (CFR), by addressing the following open questions:
· What is needed to make the research system greener and climate-friendly to inspire others to follow?
· What are the barriers impeding this?
· What are the potentials and unexpected benefits from climate-friendly research?
Die BOKU ist Co-Organisatorin der Veranstaltung und das Thema "Klimafreundliche Forschung" ist der Fokus dieser internationalen und teils virtuellen Konferenz.
