We´re offering three travel grants to Norwegian-based early-career researchers to attend Future Earth´s European regional workshop on transdisciplinary skills and co-design methodology.

This year, Future Earth's European regional workshop from the 22-23 November in Stockholm will provide training in transdisciplinary skills and co-design methodology.

Goals of the workshop:

  • Getting acquainted with the principles and approaches of transdisciplinary research and coproduction of knowledge
