Workshop series on the SDG's

Binoculars and sunset.

The Strategic Research Areas, in collaboration with Sustainability Forum, is arranging a series of workshops with focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, during 2021. The goal is to increase capacity for sustainability related research and co-creation, exchange experiences and strengthen the collaboration between different research areas. All researchers, PhD students and research coordinators at the University are welcome to participate.

Do you want to learn more about how to relate your research to sustainable development and initiate collaborations with researchers in other fields? To meet the challenges of the sustainable development goals (SDG's), new methods and approaches within research are needed. Hopefully, the workshop series can offer deeper reflections on sustainability issues, and how research can address global challenges.  


The workshop series focus on three themes, offering opportunities for discussions across the Strategic Research Areas, to become aware of risks of oversimplification in proposed solutions, underlying conflicts between SDG's and differing ways of understanding sustainability: 

  1. Policy and international research development
  2. Proposal writing, with focus on societal relevance and impact on global goals
  3. Future-oriented methodologies

Doctoral courses

In connection to the themes Proposal writing and Future-oriented methodologies, two doctoral courses will be arranged, open to all doctoral students.

Sustainability impact - Proposal writing

More information will be provided shortly.

Future-oriented methodologies

More information will be provided shortly.

The core group has the overall responsibility for the organisation and follow-up of the workshops, with representatives from all strategic research areas. The work is led by Helen Avery with support from Cerina Wittbom. The core group coordinates the hosting of the workshops, and contributes to the content, information flow and reporting. 


Target group

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.
