Background

The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate cross-faculty collaboration. The Faculty is interested in identifying strongholds and missing competences as well as how to support early phase ideas.

Nine areas of sustainability across the strongholds of the Faculty have our specific focus and the Faculty launches nine sustainability workshops, to facilitate cross-faculty networking, dialogue and project development. For more information see the Faculty’s sustainability profile.
