Marc Metian, Senior Nereus Fellow, has been invited to the first workshop of the Beijer Young Scholars Program, that will take place in Stockholm, May 21-25, 2012.
The Beijer Young Scholars Program aims to create an international network of young scientists conducting research related to social-ecological systems. The program will host post docs and young faculty (within five years of completed PhD) as well as advanced PhD-students. The program will gather a balanced mix of people with backgrounds in economics, ecology, political science, and related disciplines; stimulate collaboration; and run working groups and workshops.
The aim of the workshops is to trigger collaboration between young scientists with different disciplinary backgrounds, predominantly economists and ecologists, supporting them in creating their own research networks with strong links to the Institute’s network of researchers and institutes.
The 2012 workshop will be part of the global dynamics and resilience research program and focus on the critical challenge:
How can we stimulate social innovation and steer technological progress to promote desirable and resilient futures for humanity?
