We are happy to invite you to join us and our partners in business, government and academia at the online Meet & Greet Young Researchers: Social Innovations for Sustainability on Friday September 10, from 12:30 p.m. till 16:30 p.m.
Meet & Greet Social Innovations for Sustainability
Meet & Greet Social Innovations for Sustainability

Sustainability has become a key driver of innovation. It creates both opportunities and challenges, but how do these new insights and changes affect society? What are the drivers of social and behavioural change towards sustainability? How does society respond to change, and where can we work together to address the challenges towards a sustainable society?

This Meet & Greet will focus on the social sciences and humanities approach to the four main themes: Energy Transition, Food Sustainability, Social Inclusion and Social Entrepreneurship. During the online event we offer young researchers, entrepreneurs and governmental organizations, companies and non-profit organizations the opportunity to meet with each other, discuss the latest insights from research and explore potential new research collaborations.

For whom? Young researchers, entrepreneurs, and representatives of governmental organizations, companies and non-profit organizations, with specific interest in the societal aspect of sustainability.

By whom? Groningen Graduate Schools, the Federation of Graduate Schools in Social Sciences and Humanities and the team of Industry Relations.

We invite researchers and other participants to present their research and innovation projects in the area of Social Innovations for Sustainability by means of a poster. If you are interested in participating with a poster presentation, please indicate this with your registration. A submission process will be used for poster presentations in which your poster will be reviewed for feedback. Specific guidelines will be shared after registration.

The Meet & Greet will be hosted on the online platform Let’s Get Digital. Information about this platform and the log-in details will be provided to you via email.
