The University of Tampere is establishing a transdisciplinary sustainable development research network. The aim of the network is to bring together researchers interested in multidisciplinary sustainability and/or sustainable development research.

“The network will support the strategy of the University of Tampere by promoting high-quality, internationally oriented and societally relevant research,” says Professor Eija Vinnari from the School of Management.

The network will organise both internal research seminars and public events aimed at fostering dialogue between academics and the civil society. The first seminar is scheduled to take place on Fri 13.5.2016 from 9-11 (venue and programme to be confirmed later).
