Place: Danish Centre for Environment and Energy, Aarhus University (Aarhus, Denmark)
The EU strategy for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 points to six key/major societal challenges to which the research community should identify solutions. One of these is the challenge: Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials.
Aarhus University aims at bringing its research together across disciplines to foster solutions to the challenges facing society. Fifteen years after the Aarhus Convention was agreed, we invite researchers from all disciplines to Aarhus University on the 3rd and 4th of October 2013.
The Partnership for European Environmental Research (PEER), of which Aarhus University is a member, will take the collected advice of the conference to the Commission and communicate the views of the research community to DG Research in November 2013, to incorporate these in the process of developing and improving the strategic research agenda of Horizon 2020.
