SRA workshop series: The professional development workshop - Forming multidisciplinary collaborations and moving them forward
Do you want to learn more about how to relate your research to sustainable development and initiate collaborations with researchers in other fields? The Strategic Research Areas, in collaboration with Sustainability Forum, is continuing the series of workshops with focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, during 2022. This workshop is the third within the theme Policy for research agendas.
The aim of this workshop is to provide you with information from a selection of support organisations on how to develop your collaborations and applications to receive funding for your ideas. We will also listen to examples of fruitful multidisciplinary collaborations. The workshop offers a unique opportunity for networking to find new potential collaborators, and to work on a draft for a Pufendorf study group. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about your future possibilities at LU.
The workshop is offered in English and in hybrid format, ending with a lunch mingle for those attending in-person (optional). The number of seats for the in-person alternative is limited to 45 people (applying "first-registered, first-served" principle).

Aim of the workshop series
As the climate and other planetary crises escalate, there is a need to develop the SRA’s to better meet the societal challenges and to find solutions to achieve a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable development worldwide.
The aim of the workshops is to develop work processes of common interest, exchange experiences and strengthen sustainability collaboration between research areas, as well as to create a broader reflection on sustainability issues at Lund university and in society. The sustainable development goals can in this context function as a common language connecting academic activities with policy goals.
Workshops will mainly target researchers, doctoral students and research coordinators/administrators from the Strategic Research Areas, but the workshops will be open to all staff within Lund University.
