To support society in achieving sustainability, we need to make better use of the knowledge we already have.
But what strategies are most effective to facilitate the translation, communication and mediation across boundaries? What are successful ways and formats to provide scientific advice to decision makers? How can academic and non-academic sources of knowledge be combined to obtain the best possible understanding of particular sustainability challenges? This workshop explores new ideas to improve, leverage and upscale the use of existing knowledge to further sustainable development.
