During three parallel workshop sessions focussed on different themes, research and teaching staff of the University of Fribourg will be discussing how science can best contribute to the transformation to sustainability. The workshops will be followed by the formal opening of the new Environmental Sciences and Humanities Institute and an apéro.
This event invites researchers and teaching staff of the University of Fribourg as well as other interested parties to reflect together on the following questions:
Which aspects of the are already being researched at the University of Fribourg? In which areas does it contribute to the priority topics?
What are the main gaps and unresolved issues? How, by whom and in which partnerships could they be addressed?
How can research and teaching on these issues be institutionalised at the University of Fribourg, what institutional requirements are needed for this and what role can the Environmental Sciences and Humanities Institute play in this?
