Against the backdrop of the concretization of the 2030 Agenda adopted in September and the universally applicable Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) anchored therein, solution strategies for the greater intensification of interdisciplinary cooperation between different scientific disciplines and the necessary internationalization of research will be developed in a dialogue between representatives of development and sustainability research, research policy and research funding institutions.
As part of a total of three planned events on December 9, 2015, March 17, 2016, and June 17, 2016, the event series would like to address the following questions:
- How can "development research" and "sustainability research" complement each other in a meaningful way? What opportunities are there for collaboration? How can interdisciplinary cooperation be strengthened, especially in view of very different scientific approaches?
- What steps need to be taken to improve the international orientation of sustainability-related research - especially with regard to cooperation with developing and emerging countries?
- Through which incentive structures can politics promote internationally oriented sustainability research? How can research funding programs support these developments?
