Joint BECC and MERGE spring meeting 2019: The Sustainable Development Goals
The meeting will be held in Gothenburg on May 7-8 in 2019. It is a lunch-to-lunch meeting and will take place at the Wallenberg Conference Centre.
All BECC and MERGE members are welcome!
This year’s meeting theme is ‘The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)’.
How are BECC and MERGE stakeholders adapting to the new development agenda?
And how can our research contribute to Sweden’s implementation of the 17 SDGs?
At the 2019 spring meeting we will meet stakeholders, learn about their implementation efforts and identify knowledge gaps. Our goal is to further enable BECC and MERGE researchers to convey the relevance of their research with regard to the SDGs and the capacity of Swedish stakeholders to implement them.
Information on keynote speakers and the agenda will follow in the coming months.
